Grand View man to be deported after serving time for meth

A Grand View man was sentenced to 27 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in the Boise area, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Idaho.

Jose Antonio Diaz-Juarez, 45, also will forfeit about $8,200 in drug money and is set to be deported to Mexico following his sentence.

Diaz-Juarez was convicted of working with two men from Elko, Nev. — Daniel Valdenegro-Zafiro, 24, and Diego Alejandro Alcantar-Armenta, 29 — to send out three separate deliveries of meth to the Boise area. Valdenegro-Zafiro was sentenced to 52 months in prison, will be required to forfeit $8,200 and will also be deported to Mexico following his sentence. Alcantar-Armenta will face a 42-month sentence, forfeit $8,200 and also be deported to Mexico.

All three pleaded guilty in January to charges of conspiracy to distribute meth.
