SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Two men were sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Foote on charges of conspiracy with intent to distribute and distribution of cocaine from August 2008 to April 2011.

German Caballero Rodriguez, 42, of Houston, pleaded guilty on June 13, 2013. He was sentenced to 100 months in prison plus five years of supervised release.

Tyrone James Thibeaux, 38, of Lafayette, pleaded guilty on December 9, 2013. He was sentenced to 135 months in prison plus five years of supervised release.

Rodriguez and Thibeaux, along with three co-defendants, were indicted in April 2012 on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine.

"According to evidence presented at his guilty plea ... Rodriguez supplied multi-kilogram quantities of cocaine from Houston to a large-scale Lafayette drug trafficking/distribution organization," said U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley in a news release.

The three co-defendants were John Dauphin, Glenn Charles and Fernellis Woods. Dauphin was sentenced on February 14, 2014, to 120 months in prison plus five years of supervised release. Charles was sentenced on December 12, 2013, to 71 months in prison plus five years supervised release. Woods was sentenced on October 18, 2013, to 135 months in prison plus five years of supervised release.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Carencro Police Department, the Houston Police Department and the Waller County Texas Sheriff's Office participated in the investigation.
