Large-scale drug ring figure gets 120 months in prison

A man whose arrest led to the unraveling of a large-scale drug ring three years ago received a 10-year prison sentence last week.

Pedro Salud Rubio-Garciano was given 120 months behind bars by a federal judge on one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess cocaine and methamphetamine Thursday.

In May 2011, Rubio-Garcia's arrest in Angola led to an investigation dubbed "Operation Breakfast Club" by federal investigators.

In all, 20 people were indicted, with Rubio-Garcia being pegged as a drug supplier in Steuben County.

Ultimately, investigators found that the ring had connections to major suppliers in Mexico and Chicago, and that cocaine was shipped to northeast Indiana in kilogram quantities.
