Two men were sentenced to federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine from Los Angeles to Bemidji via the U.S. Mail.
According to court documents, in July 2021, 26-year-old Molandas Johnson brought five pounds of meth to a post office in LA and shipped it to a Bemidji address.
Federal agents obtained a search warrant to seize the package, with controlled delivery of the package to Bemidji, picked up by co-conspirator 24-year-old Luis Hernandez.
Johnson was sentenced to ten years in prison on Jan. 25 and Hernandez was sentenced to nine years on Feb. 9.
The ATF, DEA, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the BIA, the Minnesota BCA, and the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force conducted the investigation.
