An illegal immigrant who was twice deported to Mexico for drug felonies has been sentenced to life in prison for taking part in a cocaine trafficking ring.

Federal prosecutors in Atlanta said Monday that Olivar Martinez-Blanco, 31, of Lawrenceville was convicted in September of acting as a lookout for a 35-pound cocaine shipment. Inside a stash house, agents found almost 1,000 pounds of marijuana, 35 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, five pounds of cocaine and several firearms.

U.S. Attorney David E. Nahmias said Martinez-Blanco, who was sentenced last week, “illegally re-entered the United States to traffic in cocaine.”
