Polk man gets prison for role in meth operation

A Winter Haven man was sentenced to 14 years in prison today for his role in a methamphetamine operation, U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley said today.

Maximilano Reynoso, 39, pleaded guilty March 4.

According to evidence, Reynoso ordered high-purity meth from Mexico and supervised couriers who distributed the drugs in Polk County. Reynoso also oversaw the transfer of drug proceeds from Polk County to Mexico.

Reynoso’s co-defendant, Gerardo Millian, 29, Auburndale, was sentenced to 77 months in federal prison on April 24.

During the investigation, Homeland Security Investigations agents and Polk County deputies made numerous seizures, including a kilogram of meth shipped via Federal Express from Manzanillo, Mexico, to a Polk County home; 200 grams of meth from a residence in Auburndale; 4 kilograms of meth from a vehicle on Interstate 4 in Polk County; and 40 kilograms of meth from a home in Orlando.

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
