A 36-year-old Sacramento man has been sentenced to almost 22-years in prison for his involvement in a nationwide drug ring.

Jose Medrano is believed to be part of a Mexican-based drug trafficking organization that operated in California, Nevada, and Illinois. He was arrested driving a car that also held a woman and her eight-year-old daughter.

During a search, a loaded handgun and 15 pounds of methamphetamine was found in hidden compartments.

A search of Medrano's home turned up more of the drug as well as multiple firearms and body armor.
