PORTLAND – A Woodburn man was sentenced to nine years in prison for charges related to drug trafficking Monday.
Albino Miranda Camarillo, 44, of Woodburn was arrested last year and pleaded guilty to four federal crimes after an undercover federal investigation.
Portland FBI, ICE, ATF agents and the South Metro Gang Task Force investigated the drug trafficking activities of a person referred to as “JoJo.”
Agents discovered that Camarillo was a Mexican citizen with prior convictions for transporting narcotics in California. He had previously been deported after serving prison sentences.
Although Camarillo was collecting food stamp benefits and claimed to be unemployed, investigators found a storage locker, several cars and a home in Woodburn involved in the trafficking. His bank accounts totaling more than $28,000 were seized.
Camarillo was sentenced to 108 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, felon in possession of firearms, food stamp fraud, and illegal reentry by a deported alien.
At the time of his release, he will be deported to Mexico.
