Two men involved with a Georgia woman who was seeking a source in Chattanooga for large shipments of cocaine were sentenced on Thursday to federal prison terms.
Leticia Gonzalez is set for sentencing on Aug. 22.
As it turned out, Ms. Gonzalez and her group were dealing with a person who turned out to be an undercover police officer.
Carl Eugene Hunt was sentenced to serve 15 years and nine months by Federal Judge Curtis Collier.
Authorities said they were advised by a confidential informant that Hunt was part of a group seeking to obtain a source for large shipments of cocaine.
Several meetings were set up in Chattanooga, and a deal was finally worked out last Sept. 6. Hunt was arrested and over $76,000 was confiscated that had been meant for the purchase of three kilograms of cocaine.
Hunt had stated that the group eventually wanted to buy 20 kilograms a week of cocaine.
Bobby Jack Huggins, who was involved in the same deal, got seven years and three months.
