LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Two California men have been sentenced to federal prison in New Mexico after pleading guilty to methamphetamine trafficking charges.

Prosecutors say 51-year-old Mario Llantada received a 14-year prison term Tuesday while 42-year-old Martin Llantada was sentenced to 10 years and one month in prison.

Both men are from La Puente, California. They will each have to be on five years of supervised release after their prison terms.

The two were arrested and indicted in March 2014.

They were accused of conspiring to sell about four pounds of methamphetamine to an undercover FBI agent in New Mexico’s Dona Ana County.

Prosecutors say Mario Llantada also was accused of money laundering and using a communication device in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
