OKLAHOMA CITY – DANTE DE LA CRUZ-ALVAREZ, 28, of Oklahoma City, was sentenced today to serve 132 months in prison for distributing methamphetamine and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Downing.

On December 30, 2019, De La Cruz-Alvarez was arrested after a search of his vehicle at a traffic stop resulted in the seizure of 31 one-pound vacuum-sealed packages containing methamphetamine.

On January 21, 2020, a federal grand jury indicted De La Cruz-Alvarez for conspiracy and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. On July 22, 2020, De La Cruz-Alvarez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute methamphetamine. Today, U.S. District Judge Bernard M. Jones sentenced De La Cruz-Alvarez to serve 132 months (11 years) in federal prison. At the end of his term, he must also serve five years of supervised release.

This case is the result of investigations by District 21 Drug Task Force, Oklahoma City Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  Assistant United States Attorney Matthew P. Anderson prosecuted the case.
