CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Two Californians who were caught with nearly 22 pounds (nearly 10 kilograms) of methamphetamine during a traffic stop in southern Wyoming have been sentenced.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Adrian Reyna Sr. was sentenced Wednesday to one month shy of 11 years in federal prison, while Andrea Aldaco received a seven-year term. The two, who are from Wasco, California, previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute.

A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper pulled over Reyna's rental car on Interstate 80 in Albany County in February and found 20 vacuum-sealed bags filled with a white substance in the trunk. Investigators say the bags were filled with 21.7 pounds of 90-percent pure methamphetamine.

According to court records, the two were transporting the drugs for an unknown drug trafficking organization.
