A woman was sentenced Friday to seven years in state prison following the 2016 seizure of five pounds of methamphetamine, the state Attorney General said in a news release.
Sandra Y. Parra-Quintero, of Hermosillo, Mexico, pleaded guilty last month to second-degree possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. She was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Benjamin Podolnick in Atlantic County.
Eder M. Gonzalez, also on trial in connection with the seizure, pleaded guilty to first-degree possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and was sentenced in May to 10 years in prison.
The Atlantic City Task Force and ICE Homeland Security Investigations received information in 2016 that Gonzalez and Parra-Quintero were carrying a large quantity of methamphetamine to Camden in August 2016.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives and the State Police TEAMS South Unit, the ACTS and HSI arrested Gonzalez and Parra-Quintero without incident. Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced the sentencing.
