WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Leonardo L. Sanchez, of Wichita Falls, Texas, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor to 110 months in federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.
Sanchez, 37, has been in custody since his arrest in June 2013 on a related federal criminal complaint.
According to plea documents filed in the case, on October 25, 2012, when officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department executed a narcotics search warrant at his home, officers found two semi-automatic pistols in a safe. In Sanchez’s truck, officers located a tube of caulk that contained two small plastic bags containing additional small plastic bags of methamphetamine. Sanchez admitted he possessed this methamphetamine and intended to distribute it later.
The Texas Department of Public Safety, the Wichita Falls Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated; Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary F. Walters prosecuted.
