Woman gets 10 years for cocaine smuggling

A Las Vegas woman was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison for smuggling more than $2 million worth of cocaine into the country from Mexico, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.

Danelld Rebeca Colman, 28, was found guilty of importation of cocaine and possession with intent to distribute cocaine on Oct. 27, said Debra Massey, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Colman drove her car from Mexico through the San Luis Port of Entry with more than 20 kilograms of cocaine in the roof. At trial, Colman claimed she wasn't aware the drugs were there, Massey said.

The investigation was conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and ICE.
