TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-A Mexican national living in Jerome will spend 10 years in prison for dealing methamphetamine in the Magic Valley. According to U.S. Attorney Rafael Gonzales Jr., Jose Luis Rodriguez-Landeros, 40, was also sentenced to five years of supervised release once his prison sentence for distribution and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine is up. According to court documents, Rodriquez-Landeros sold meth to a confidential informant from a tire shop he operated in Jerome. He was arrested following a traffic stop in December of 2020 when officers found more than a pound of meth, a firearm, and other drug paraphernalia. Rodriquez-Landeros pleaded guilty earlier this year in March.
