2 S. Idaho men face prison after meth deal
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Two Idaho men face 20 years in prison each after pleading guilty to dealing methamphetamine in federal court.
Raul Garcia-Rosales of Mountain Home and Jaime Guerrero of Glenns Ferry will be sentenced in February in U.S. District Court in Boise.
That's after both admitted Monday to distribution of the illegal stimulant.
Here's what happened: In 2011, the 39-year-old Garcia was supplied a pound of meth by the 26-year-old Guerrero.
Then, Garcia went to a Mountain Home truck stop and tried to sell the drugs to an undercover officer.
In addition to prison time, they could be fined up to $1 million each, part of the federal government's crackdown on meth dealers.
Numerous law enforcement agencies teamed up on the case, including the Idaho State Police and Elmore County Sheriff's Office.
