WICHITA, Kan. A man arrested last fall for possessing 117 pounds of cocaine, was sentenced Monday to three years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Tom Beall says Marco Antonio Aispuro, a 48-year-old drug courier for California, was arrested after an Oct. 21, 2016 traffic stop on eastbound Interstate 70 in Wabaunsee County.

Beall says a search of Aispuro's vehicle turned up 117 pounds of cocaine in a rear quarter panel and a spare tire.

Aispuro pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, Beall says.
