Drug dealer sentenced to 150 months in prison for trafficking cocaine

"NEW YORK - A Dominican national who previously pleaded guilty to cocaine trafficking charges, was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison and five years supervised release following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Luis Oscar Reyes-Dilone, 29, of Queens, N.Y., pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than five kilograms of cocaine. Court documents also revealed he used his basement apartment as a stash house for heroin, cocaine and drug proceeds.
At the time of his arrest, ICE agents conducted a search of his vehicle and seized approximately $44,500 in bundled U.S. currency. ICE agents also searched his home and seized approximately six kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of heroin, drug paraphernalia and approximately $57,000 in U.S. currency.
'This sentencing serves as an example of the serious consequences drug traffickers pay for trying to inject drugs into our communities.' said James T. Hayes Jr. special agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in New York. 'Drug trafficking is a serious crime and ICE will use all of its investigative resources to keep illegal drugs off our streets.'"
