Two men are headed to federal prison for their involvement in a drug trafficking operation in the Basin.

38-year-old Eric Paul Krueger, formerly of Big Spring, was sentenced to life behind bars for dealing meth.

40-year old Filomeno Franco, also a former Big Spring resident, was handed 23 years for dealing cocaine.

Investigators say both men were suppliers of drugs to drug dealers who sold in Midland, Big Spring, and the surrounding areas.

We're told Krueger and Franco are the last of 15 people sent to prison in this and other related cases.
