A convicted methamphetamine trafficker who operated in Contra Costa County until his arrest last year was sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison Friday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Ramon Rubio, 38, also known as Jose DeJesus Munoz, pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine in March as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
He admitted to distributing more than 18 pounds of methamphetamine in Contra Costa County between September 2010 and April 2011. During his arrest in April 2011, investigators found 4 pounds of the drug in a secret compartment in his car. Rubio was one of 16 charged as a result of a long-term wiretap investigation that led to a sweep of arrests in Contra Costa County in April 2011, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Investigators seized more than 100 pounds of methamphetamine, $86,000 in cash and 26 firearms. The investigation involved the FBI, the West Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team and the San Pablo Police Department.
