AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Federal prosecutors say two Amarillo men who admitted trafficking a large quantity of liquid methamphetamine have been sentenced to prison.
Prosecutors say 37-year-old Damian Erik Alcala was sentenced Tuesday to 27 years in prison. Last month, 42-year-old Richard Madrigal was sentenced to 21 years and 10 months.
Each man’s sentence will run consecutively to one received for supervised release revocation — about three years for Alcala, one year for Madrigal.
Each man had pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Prosecutors say Madrigal on July 17 drove an SUV to home in Amarillo. Alcala arrived by car. A search led to discovery of crystal meth in the kitchen and two pistols. Authorities say the SUV’s fuel tank yielded 84 pounds of liquid methamphetamine.
