Honduran man gets 6 years for cocaine chargesSource.
A Honduran man pleaded guilty Tuesday [November 24] in Waynesboro Circuit Court to bringing drugs across the Virginia border from Texas.
Judge Humes J. Franklin Jr. sentenced Matias Murrillo Lincoln, 44, of Fort Worth, Texas, to six years in prison for transporting, possessing and manufacturing cocaine.
Authorities caught Lincoln on May 21 with Yvonne Gutierrez, 27, at Comfort Inn near Interstate 64 in Waynesboro with a suitcase containing a cereal box holding more than eight ounces of powder cocaine.
After being tipped by an informant, the Jefferson Area Drug Enforcement [JADE] task force – including officers from Charlottesville and Albemarle County – set up a sting to catch Lincoln and Gutierrez.
