TUCSON – Randolph Guillermo Ramirez-Contreras, age 25, and Mario Mauricio Campos-Balderas, age 28, were each sentenced to 37 months in prison to be followed by 36 months of supervised release after they pleaded guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Cocaine and Heroin.

According to the Department of Justice, in late May 2018, Ramirez-Contreras traveled from Tucson, Arizona to Los Angeles, California to meet with Campos-Balderas, a Los Angeles resident. Together, the two men picked up approximately 65 kilograms of cocaine and 7 kilograms of heroin and loaded the narcotics into the cab of a tractor-trailer, intending to deliver the drugs in Georgia and New Jersey.

Greene County Sheriff’s deputies located the men and the tractor-trailer parked at a truck stop in Greensboro, Georgia, in the early morning hours of May 26, 2018, and seized the narcotics before Ramirez-Contreras and Campos-Balderas could complete any deliveries.
