Brookings Man Sentenced In Large Illegal Drug Case

PIERRE, S.D.- A Brookings man has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for conspiring to distribute large amounts of illegal drugs.

Authorities began investigating 20-year-old Luis Cabrera last year when they intercepted packages linked to him that contained more than 2 pounds of heroin and about 5 pounds of meth.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Cabrera pleaded guilty in April to drug conspiracy and was sentenced this week to 15 years and eight months in prison.
