A Council Bluffs woman has been sentenced to 11 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
In the summer of 2017, U-S Attorney Joe Kelly says 32 year old Ralynn Christine Francisco obtained multi-pound quantities of methamphetamine from co-defendant Baltazar Quintero-Rodriguez, a member of a Mexico-based drug trafficking organization, and redistributed it to customers in the local area.
Mexican sources supplied Quintero-Rodriguez with the methamphetamine and directed its distribution to others, including Francisco. In addition, investigators determined that Francisco wired more than $13,000 in drug proceeds on at least 15 occasions to recipients in Mexico.
The case was primarily investigated by the Omaha Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service.
