Comments Off on Federal Prosecutors: ‘Prolific’ Nevada Methamphetamine trafficker, Saul Candelorio Gastellum-Sanchez, 29, aka ‘Vampiro,’ sentenced to prison

LAS VEGAS — A 29-year-old man who sometimes uses the nickname “vampire” has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on drug, gun and immigration charges.

Federal prosecutors say Saul Candelorio Gastellum-Sanchez was a prolific drug trafficker who distributed large amounts of methamphetamine and had returned to the U.S. illegally after being deported in 2008.

He was sentenced Monday, after pleading guilty in May to conspiracy to distribute meth, possession of meth, possessing a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime, unlawfully re-entering the country and conspiring to launder money.

He admitted to trying to sell nearly 500 grams of methamphetamine to an undercover officer.

Authorities who served a search warrant at his Las Vegas home reported finding an AK-47 and two semi-automatic handguns.

Gastellum-Sanchez also calls himself “Vampiro,” Spanish for vampire.
