Meth and Ecstasy dealer Luc Tran sentenced to 10 years in federal prisonPosted on January 23, 2008
Karen P. Hewitt, United States Attorney for the Southern District of
California, announced that Luc Tran was sentenced today in U.S.
District Court in San Diego by the Honorable Larry A. Burns to serve 120 months in custody, followed by five years of supervised release, based on his convictions on October 30, 2007 for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Ecstasy.
According to court documents, Luc Tran engaged in conspiracies
with other defendants to distribute methamphetamine, cocaine, and
ecstasy. Undercover federal agents conducted negotiations and
purchased narcotics from several defendants on multiple occasions.
In his plea agreement, Luc Tran admitted to being in charge of
determining how much narcotics to sell and setting the price, as well
as enlisting others to assist him with distributing narcotics. In total,
Luc Tran admitted to distributing 305 grams of pure
methamphetamine or “ice,” 955.8 grams of cocaine, and 4,000
tablets of ecstasy.
United States Attorney Hewitt commended the outstanding work of
the agents that investigated this matter. The arrests and the
indictment were the culmination of a four-year joint investigation by
the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, and the Internal Revenue Service.
