A citizen of Mexico was sentenced today to four years in prison, for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine in Sauk County, according to a report from the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

Uriel Sangabriel-Alarcon, 34, pleaded guilty to the offense on June 17.

Sangabriel-Alarcon was arrested on Dec. 13, 2013, in Belvidere, Illinios, where he had agreed to meet a police informant to sell him one-half kilogram of cocaine.

When Sangabriel-Alarcon arrived in the car with his wife and 2-year-old son, he was arrested with the drugs that he had hidden in the car.

In addition, police recovered other evidence tying him to an ongoing drug conspiracy in Sauk County, including multiple false identification documents under the name Noe Lopez.

The report explains that he was previously convicted in this district for bank fraud in 2007, and was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison.

After being deported from the United States, he illegally returned in 2008.
