Wyoming meth trafficker sentenced after 9 years at large

39-year-old Armando Cervantes was sentenced in Salt Lake City, Utah last month for his involvement with “a large methamphetamine trafficking operation distributing drugs throughout Wyoming in 2010,” according to a release from the United States Attorney’s Office this week.

The Utah resident was originally arrested over 10 years ago on July 29th, 2010. Out on bond, he did not appear in court for the second day of the jury trial in January 2011. He remained at large until the US Marshals in Utah arrested him on February 5th, 2020.

Cervantes was sentenced on July 27th, 2020 “for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine, and possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and aiding and abetting,” according to the release.
