OKLAHOMA CITY – ARTURO DOMINGO CORRALES-VAZQUEZ, 28, of Eldorado, Sinaloa, Mexico, has been sentenced to serve 60 months in prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, as well for being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Downing.

Corrales-Vazquez was indicted in June 2018 with four counts—possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime, illegal alien in possession of a firearm, and maintaining a drug-involved premises—all of which stemmed from his May 8, 2018, arrest by Oklahoma City Police Department officers following a search of Corrales-Vazquez’s residence turned up 5.7 kilograms of methamphetamine, a Mossburg 500 shotgun with a pistol grip, and just over $49,000 in drug proceeds.  Corrales-Vazquez, who had been previously removed to Mexico once before, subsequently admitted to his involvement and told law enforcement that that the drugs were imported from Mexico. 

On July 26, 2018, Corrales-Vazquez pled guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm.  On March 5, 2020, Senior U.S. District Judge Robin J. Cauthron sentenced Corrales-Vazquez to serve 60 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release.  Following his release from prison, Corrales-Vazquez will be subject to deportation proceedings.

This case is the result of an investigation by the Oklahoma City Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service.   Assistant U.S. Attorney David McCrary prosecuted the case.

This case is part of the work of the Organized Crimes and Drug Enforcement Task Force, the Department of Justice’s signature initiatives to address and reduce drug-related criminal activity.

5 years?!?!?! What a joke!

This, being just one of the things that is happening in our great country makes me so sad. We used too be great but now anything is o.k., pretty much, which hurts more, and more, as depression rears it's ugly head. I so fear what's to come for not only myself, but my children, grandchildren, and all hard-working Americans who care.
