When he was arrested, Roque Jr. was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, drug-trafficking paraphernalia, a loaded 9-millimeter handgun, and an additional loaded magazine.
Roque Jr. was sentenced to 90 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christian Haugsby prosecuted the case.
