California Man Sentenced for Rochester Drug Bust
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A California man has been sentenced to just over six years in prison for a felony conviction stemming from a significant drug bust in Rochester last fall. 26-year-old José Rojas earlier entered a guilty plea to a first-degree drug possession charge.
He was arrested in November after Rochester police were alerted to a suspicious FedEx shipment that was being delivered to a room at a downtown Rochester hotel. The package contained 2.8 pounds of meth with a street value of almost $130,000 and Rojas was the person who took delivery of the shipment.
