Phoenix man gets 25-year prison term in drugs case

PHOENIX — A Phoenix man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison in a drug-
trafficking case.

Federal prosecutors said 53-year-old Ralph C. Moreno also was sentenced Monday
to 10 years of supervised released and fined $3,000.

A federal jury in September found Moreno guilty of conspiracy to possess with
intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute
methamphetamine and felon in possession of a firearm.

Investigators said Moreno sold meth out of his Phoenix home to people associated
with a prison-based gang in 2010.

A search warrant was issued at Moreno’s home and authorities said they found two
firearms and more than $75,000 in drug money.

Prosecutors said Moreno had two prior state felony convictions for drug
trafficking.
