PHOENIX — A Phoenix man was sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in the distribution of methamphetamine and laundering the proceeds he made from his operation, authorities said Friday.

Jose Angulo, 51, was found guilty of shipping over 50 pounds of meth to Illinois from 2018 until November 2019, according to a press release from the U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Illinois.

The United States Postal Inspection Service intercepted three of the packages during that period that had been mailed to addresses in East St. Louis and Swansea, Illinois, the release said.

The packages totaled nine pounds of meth, according to the DA’s office.

Angulo had previously been convicted in Arizona for participating in a drug trafficking organization and engaging in money laundering.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service conducted the investigation.
