Spokane, WA - Yakima Man Sentenced to 188 Months in Prison for Drug Trafficking

Carlos Peraza-Kissi, age 25, of Yakima, Washington, was sentenced for Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. United States District Judge Stanley A. Bastian sentenced Peraza-Kissi to a 188-month term of imprisonment, to be followed by a 5-year term of court supervision after he is released from federal prison.

According to information disclosed during court proceedings, between October 2016 and April 2018, Peraza-Kissi organized the transportation of large amounts of methamphetamine from Arizona to Yakima, Washington. Peraza-Kissi also sold methamphetamine, heroin, and fentanyl in Yakima during that time. In April 2018, after observing Peraza-Kissi engaging in suspicious behavior, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle he was driving and arrested him. Through further investigation, DEA found over three pounds of heroin, over two pounds of methamphetamine, twenty grams of fentanyl, and four firearms.

United States Attorney Harrington stated, “This case involves the distribution of dangerous drugs over an extended period of time, and the possession of guns. The sentence imposed reflects the seriousness of Peraza-Kissi’s conduct. I commend the investigative efforts of the DEA, Yakima Police Department and Yakima County Sheriff’s Office.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration, Yakima Police Department, and Yakima County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation of this matter.
