A Mexican citizen living in Anchorage pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to selling about 2 ounces of methamphetamine to a confidential informant in April 2010, according to court records.

Jesus “Borrego” Ayalacoria, 39, pleaded guilty in November as part of a plea deal and received a 15-year prison sentence, 10 years for the drug deal and five for having a firearm during at least one exchange. The U.S. Attorney’s office said Ayalacoria also faces deportation after completing his sentence.

Federal prosecutors dropped other charges against Ayalacoria for alleged drug dealing and possession between April and September 2010, when he was arrested.

A court docket detailing the judgment shows Ayalacoria had been indicted on another count of dealing meth and possession of more than 500 grams of cocaine with intent to distribute.

According to a federal agent’s written statement, agents recorded Ayalacoria negotiating with their informant over the phone for the 2 ounces. The agents gave the informant $6,400 cash and made video and audio recordings of the deal.

The 56 grams of white crystalline substance the informant bought from Ayalacoria tested to be about 51 grams of actual methamphetamine, the federal agent’s affidavit says.

Ayalacoria forfeited $1,365 in cash that agents seized at his arrest, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
