ATLANTA (AP) - An illegal immigrant who was twice deported to
Mexico for drug felonies has been sentenced to life in prison for taking part in a cocaine trafficking ring.
Federal prosecutors in Atlanta said Monday that 31-year-old
Olivar Martinez-Blanco of Lawrenceville was convicted in September
of acting as a lookout for a 35-pound cocaine shipment.
Inside a stash house, agents found almost 1,000 pounds of marijuana, 35 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, five pounds of cocaine and
U.S. Attorney David E. Nahmias said Martinez-Blanco, who was sentenced last week, "llegally re-entered the United States to traffic in cocaine."
