Arizona man pleads guilty in multistate drug case

NORFOLK, Va. -- An Arizona man has pleaded guilty in Virginia to helping run a multistate cocaine-distribution ring.

U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride's office said 32-year-old Luis Alberto Navarro of Tucson faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Sentencing is set for Dec. 13.

According to a statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Navarro operated the Tucson hub of a cocaine-trafficking organization. The enterprise had a nationwide network of distribution points, including locations in Indiana, California, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Navarro recruited and supervised couriers to transport and distribute cocaine, which typically was hidden inside the lining of coolers and inert, hollowed-out fire extinguishers.
