Man Sentenced for Helping Load Marijuana

McALLEN–A Mexican national was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Tuesday for helping load marijuana for a drug smuggling operation in the Rio Grande Valley.
Authorities reported Gonzalo Iracheta-Tamez loaded about 2,690 kilograms of marijuana last September from a storage location in Starr County into passenger vehicles for further distribution of the marijuana.
Iracheta-Tamez has been in custody since his arrest.  He will remain there pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prison facility to serve his sentence.
