Drug courier sentenced after 117 pounds of cocaine found

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A drug courier from California has been sentenced to three years in federal prison after he was stopped in Kansas with 117 pounds of cocaine.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 48-year-old Marco Antonio Aispuro was sentenced Monday for one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He was arrested in October after the Kansas Highway Patrol stopped him and found cocaine hidden in a rear quarter panel and a spare tire.

The traffic stop happened west of Topeka on Interstate 70 in Wabaunsee County.
