A Peru man was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison for his part in a mail-order drug ring.
Jorge Alejandro Goyre, 31, of 2016 First St. pleaded guilty to an amended count of cannabis trafficking and was sentenced to just 2 more years than the statutory minimum of 8 years. He could be released in 2014.
Goyre was charged Nov. 17, the same day he received a postal package containing nearly 7 pounds of marijuana. What he didn’t know was that a postal inspector had intercepted the package and alerted the Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team, who immediately raided his dwelling and seized the drugs.
Goyre later admitted that he’d arranged the shipment from McAllen, Texas, and the drugs were intended for sale in Aurora.
He declined an opportunity to address Judge Cynthia M. Raccuglia before sentencing.
