KC Drug Kingpin to prison

A man described as the leader of a 56-million-dollar Kansas City drug enterprise will spend more than a decade in federal prison.  

Forty-year-old Jose Armendariz-Rascon was sentenced to 15 years without parole Friday for his part in the distribution of 26-hundred kilos of cocaine in the Kansas City metro area.  

Aremandariz-Rascon was also ordered to pay more than 56-million dollars to the federal government in drug trafficking proceeds.   

The U-S Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri says he pleaded guilty to coordinating the transportation of loads of cocaine from the El Paso area to Kansas City for distribution.
