California Man Sentenced for Driving Load of Heroin to Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A California man who was being paid to drive drugs to Kansas City has been sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison without parole. Prosecutors say 21-year-old Juan Carlos Ahumada of San Ferdinando, California, pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to deliver heroin after being caught on Interstate 70 with 15 pounds of the drug. Ahumada was pulled over by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper in Wabaunsee County, where investigators found a hidden compartment where the heroin was concealed. In his plea deal with prosecutors, Ahumada admitted he was hired to drive a load of the drug from California to Kansas City. He was sentenced yesterday (MON).
