Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Yakima man convicted for drug trafficking will spend the next 10 years in federal prison.

24-year-old Jose Antonio Naranjo-Lozano was convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Naranjo-Lozano was sentenced to ten years in prison, followed by a five year term of court supervision once he's released from prison.

In July 2012, a complaint was filed alleging that Naranjo-Lozano and a codefendant had attempted to sell five pounds of methamphetamine to undercover DEA agents.

As detailed in the complaint, Naranjo-Lozano and the codefendant arrived at the location for the drug sale with the bulk of the methamphetamine hidden in an electrically operated secret compartment located in their vehicle.

Naranjo-Lozano later pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute over 500 grams of a substance containing methamphetamine.
