TRENTON, N.J. - A California truck driver who brought large quantities of drugs into New Jersey is now headed to prison.
Oscar Franco, of Chula Vista, received a 10-year sentence Friday.
The 59-year-old Franco had 36 kilograms of heroin in his tractor-trailer when state police stopped the vehicle on Interstate 78 in Greenwich Township for a routine commercial inspection.
New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino says the heroin could have sold for more than $10 million on the street once it was cut and packaged.
