ALEXANDRIA, La. - Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Santiago Delfierro Anguiano, a/k/a “Shag,” age 50, a federal inmate, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Dee D. Drell for attempting to obtain contraband in prison. Judge Drell sentenced Anguiano to 120 months (10 years) in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release. This sentence will run consecutive to the 30-month federal sentence he is currently serving for Illegal Re-entry of a Removed Alien. Anguiano pled guilty to the charge on January 16, 2020. Evidence introduced at the hearing revealed that in March 2016 while serving as a federal inmate at the U.S. Penitentiary in Pollock, Louisiana, Anguiano conspired with others to attempt to obtain methamphetamine in FCC Pollock. Anguiano knew that the methamphetamine was an illegal substance and that he was prohibited from having it. The methamphetamine was seized in a vehicle driven by a co-defendant in this case during a traffic stop in Woodworth, Louisiana, on March 31, 2016 before making its way into the prison. The seized methamphetamine was tested at the DEA South Central Laboratory and found to be 97% pure. The FBI and Louisiana State Police conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel J. McCoy prosecuted the case.
