Man sentenced to 10 years for drug trafficking ring

Posted:
WACO -

A member of a large drug trafficking ring was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to more than 10 years in prison.

Oliver Calderon pled guilty to one count of money laundering. He was accused of helping transport dozens of kilograms of cocaine to St. Louis, Houston and Dallas, along with methamphetamines.

Calderon was working for and living in a drug house belonging to Freddie Rodriguez, who's already in prison.

IRS Drug Task Force's Mike Lemoine said it would have been hard for Calderon to deny the accusations.

"We knew what was going on and once we have substantiation of him carrying drug loads and money loads throughout the country," Lemoine said.

Calderon got 135 months in prison, three years probation and a $2,000 fine. Authorities are still looking for another person involved in the case. Officials say Refugio Vasquez pled guilty and then fled to Mexico.
