A 29-year-old man was sentenced by a U.S. district judge to 10 years in prison for possessing cocaine with intent to distribute.

According to a release from the Attorney General's Office, Luis Gonzalez-Lopez plead guilty to to the charge on April 23. 

Gonzalez-Lopez and another man contacted a police informant in Illinois seeking to purchase cocaine and marijuana. When they arrived to purchase the drugs in Beloit, they were surrounded by police and arrested, according to the release.
