Sunnyside Man Sentenced to 14+ Years in Prison for Meth Trafficking

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, WA - A Sunnyside man will spend the next 14 and a half years in federal prison for meth trafficking.

On Wednesday, a judge with the Eastern District of Washington sentenced 26-year-old Trinidad Jesus Suarez for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Suarez was sentenced to a 174 month term of imprisonment, to be followed by a 60 month term of court supervision upon release from Federal prison.

According to information disclosed during the court proceedings, in October, 2012, the Yakima County Law Enforcement Against Drugs Task Force (LEAD) made multiple purchases of narcotics from Suarez. On November 2, 2012, officers executed state search warrants for Suarez’ vehicles and known residences. Suarez was arrested at his girlfriend’s residence in Sunnyside, where officers found over 250 grams of actual methamphetamine.

Suarez was arrested that day and was been in custody since the arrest. Suarez has multiple prior felony drug offense convictions and admitted to possessing the methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Suarez pleaded guilty to the charge on February 6, 2014.
