CEDAR CITY — Three men who pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges have each been sentenced to prison.

In separate hearings conducted via videoconference on July 11, 5th District Judge Matthew L. Bell sentenced Jose Garcia, 23, and Jose Angel Luevanos, 26, each to serve one term of 1-15 years at the Utah State Prison.

Then, one week later, a third co-defendant, Steve Fierro, 25, received the same sentence from Judge Bell.

As previously reported in St. George News / Cedar City News, the trio were arrested in March when a Utah Highway Patrol trooper pulled over their vehicle for a window tint violation. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded approximately 60 pounds of methamphetamine.
