TUCSON, Ariz. - Two men were sentenced to prison for their parts in the cross-country distribution of cocaine and heroin.

In federal court Nov. 4, U.S. District judge Rosemary Marquez sentenced both Randolph Guillermo Ramirez-Contreras, 25, and Mario Mauricio Campos-Balderas, 28, to 37 months in prison for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and heroin.

Both men will be under supervised released for 36 months following their prison stays.

Federal prosecutors say Ramirez-Contreras traveled from Tucson to Los Angeles to meet with Campos-Baldersas to pick up 65 kilograms of cocaine and seven kilograms of heroin, loading them into a tractor-trailor cab. They meant to deliver the drugs in Georgia and New Jersey but were arrested May 26, 2018 at a Greensboro, Georgia truck stop.
