(Elderly woman sentenced)…74 year old Glinnys Rodriguez was in court Friday.
The Chula Vista Grandmother had been accused of being the caretaker of a warehouse that hid a cross-border drug tunnel. The US District Court Judge sentenced her to 5 years probation. Rodriguez was arrested in April 2014 after the 600 yard tunnel was discovered. The sophisticated tunnel was found at the warehouse, about a mile from the Border in Otay Mesa. Rodriguez was also fined $1,500 and ordered to serve 80 hours community service. The judge said the woman’s age was a factor in the sentence he handed down.
