El Salvador National Sentenced To 72 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution, Illegal Reentry Of Previously Removed Alien | USAO-EDOK

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Pablo Geovanni Aguirre-Rodriguez, age 37, of El Salvador was sentenced to 72 months’ imprisonment, and 4 years of supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine and Illegal Reentry Of Previously Removed Alien. The charges arose from an investigation by the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security – Homeland Security Investigations. 

The Indictment alleged that on or about December 19, 2019, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant knowingly and intentionally possessed with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance. The Indictment also alleged the defendant, an alien, was found in the United States after having been removed therefrom on or about April 10, 2013 at or near Phoenix, Arizona, and not having obtained the express consent of the Secretary of Homeland Security to reapply for admission to the United States.

United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester said, “The defendant, while in this country unlawfully, was in the business of dealing methamphetamine. Because of the diligent efforts of the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations, his business here has ended. Each time a drug dealer is brought to justice, communities become safer.”

“The public safety risk that drug traffickers pose to our communities and their consumers is dire. Ending the livelihood of these self-serving traffickers is a top priority for Homeland Security Investigations and our law enforcement partners worldwide,” said Ryan L. Spradlin, Special Agent in Charge of HSI’s Dallas Field Office. “We will attack these criminal organizations at their core to end the mayhem they cause.”

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Ryan Conway represented the United States.
