Two men connected to a Lubbock cocaine ring are headed to prison.

Eusebio Miramontez will spend the next 15 years in prison for attempted money laundering.

Juan Antonio Benitez Junior will spend 10 years behind bars for being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition.

Both were sentenced in federal court Friday.

Miramontez, Benitez, and four others were arrested back in April, when federal, state, and local law enforcement raided a home at 23rd and Avenue N.

Police say the six men bought large amounts of cocaine, transported it, and stashed it at various locations.
