WICHITA COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

The last member of a methamphetamine trafficking ring was sentenced Monday.

Juan Leonardo Tello, 50, of Dallas, Texas was sentenced by U.S. Judge Reed O'Connor following his guilty plea in March 2017 to one count of Conspiracy to Distribute Five Grams or More of Methamphetamine.

Tello was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. Tello has been in custody since his arrest in January 2017.

In May, Judge O'Connor sentenced his co-defendants Jackie Eugene Clayton, 38, to 235 months in federal prison, Juan Carlos Lopez, 53, to 100 months in federal prison and Rudy Roman Ramirez, 45, to 135 months in federal prison for their role in the methamphetamine conspiracy.

According to court documents, Tello, on multiple occasions, distributed various amounts of methamphetamine from December 2014 to December 2015.

Tello distributed to multiple customers from Wichita Falls including Ramirez and Lopez. 

The case was investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Wichita County DA's Office, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
