A Naperville, Illinois man will spend the next 30 years in jail after he ran a massive cocaine business out of a Chicago warehouse. ABC7Chicago

A Federal Judge laid the smackdown on a Naperville man, giving him a prison sentence that was THREE TIMES LONGER than was originally suggested.

Luis Eduardo Gonzalez-Garcia was operating a huge cocaine business out of warehouses in Naperville and Arlington Heights and sent millions upon millions of dollars back to the Mexican Cartels...This was a drug operation that brought in $56 Million and then some!

Apparently Luis was living the high life while doing all this drug action in the Chicago burbs:

 The drug magnate had yachts in tropical places, expensive gold watches, fancy SUVs and he was toasting the high life on horseback. That is, until Gonzalez-Garcia was arrested in 2018 by DEA from Chicago as he was boarding a plane in Guatemala City. - Bob Bell, Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago Field Division

Gonzalez-Garcia was arrested and pleaded guilty, thinking that that would help "reduce" his sentence. The paperwork done by his attorney stated that Gonzalez-Garcia was a family man, and very remorseful for his actions. This should help get his sentence reduced, right? Wrong.


The judge not only did not REDUCE his sentence, he tripled it! Gonzalez-Garcia requested 10 years, and received 30 with a $1.5 Million fine.

When this Chicago burbs drug dealer gets out of prison, he will be in his 80's.
