KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Two more defendants are going to prison for what federal prosecutors say was a $28 million drug trafficking conspiracy in the Kansas City area.
The U.S. Attorney's office said 60-year-old Victor Hernandez-Delgado, of Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison. Forty-one-year-old Jorge Cisneros-Saucedo, of Kansas City, Kan., received a 10-year sentence.
The two were among 45 people charged with taking part in a drug trafficking organization targeted by federal investigators in October 2010. Cisneros-Saucedo and Hernandez-Delgado both pleaded guilty conspiring to distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine.
Five other defendants are awaiting trial. The rest are awaiting sentencing or have already been sentenced.
Authorities say the investigation resulted in the seizures of more than $2 million in cash, nearly 200 firearms and 29 vehicles.
