Jury convicts trucker in record meth seizure

Posted By on Thu, May 4, 2017 at 4:53 PM

A federal jury has convicted a California trucker in a case that began in 2015 when state troopers found 260 pounds of methamphetamines worth millions in a tractor-trailer rig also hauling furniture to Alabama and Georgia, the U.S. attorney said in a news release

Javier Leon, whose truck was checked after he parked illegally on an Interstate 40 ramp in Lonoke, faces a sentence of 10 years to life for possession of the drug with intent to deliver.  The U.S. attorney's release characterized the load, a record in Arkansas, as big enough to supply every man, woman and child in Arkansas.
