Two men from California received relatively light prison sentences after getting caught with rather large amounts of methamphetamine and fentanyl.

25-year-old Erik Eduardo Velazquez Bautista and 25-year-old Jesus Alejandro Rodriguez Velasquez, both from San Diego, had each previously pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute fentanyl and methamphetamine.

On Monday, they were both sentenced to 24 months behind bars.

Federal authorities say on December 2nd, 2021, the pair was driving across the country to deliver narcotics to a purchaser in New York when they were stopped by law enforcement.

Law enforcement seized approximately 20 kilograms of methamphetamine and approximately five kilograms of fentanyl.

Officials say the drugs were going to be distributed "in New Jersey and elsewhere."

In addition to the prison terms, both defendants were also sentenced to three years of supervised release.
