39-year-old, Hector Francisco Ramirez-Roman, of San Luis, Rio Colorado, Mexico, was sentenced to a 108-month prison term, followed by four years of supervised release, on Tuesday by United States District Judge John C. Hinderaker.

Ramirez-Roman also has to pay a special charge of $100.

He admitted to having 50 grams or more of a substance or mixture with a detectable amount of methamphetamine in his possession with the intent to distribute it.

On May 21, 2021, Ramirez-Roman was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers as he attempted to enter the country from Mexico in a tractor-trailer with cucumbers.

Agents searched the car and found a combination of gasoline and liquid methamphetamine in the passenger-side gas tank.

The gas tank contained more than 332 kilograms of methamphetamine or around 1.3 million individual doses.
