Man caught smuggling meth and cocaine at San Francisco airport sentenced to more than 12 years

Prosecutors say a man caught smuggling 17 pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine in three false-bottom suitcases at San Francisco International Airport has been sentenced to 12½ years in prison.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (http://bit.ly/16gvwtK ) 22-year-old Pedro Daniel Rodriguez was headed to Sydney, Australia, with the drugs when he was caught at SFO.

Rodriguez pleaded guilty in September to six felony charges. He will have five years of supervised release after he's released from prison.

U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag says Rodriguez arrived at SFO on Dec. 29, 2011, on a Continental Airlines flight from Guadalajara, Mexico. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers chose him for an extra search and then found 13 pounds of methamphetamine and four pounds of cocaine.
