Tracy Man Indicted for Possession of More Than 90 Pounds of Meth

United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced that today a federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Arturo Antonio Campa, 32, of Tracy, with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

According to court documents, on July 22, 2011, law enforcement officers stopped Campa on Highway 99 in Stanislaus County. A search of his pickup truck revealed 91.75 pounds of methamphetamine in a hidden compartment.

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Sacramento’s Safe Streets Task Force, the California Highway Patrol, and the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, the Merced County Sheriff’s Department, and the Tracy Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Kevin P. Rooney is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Campa faces a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.

The charges are only allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
