Whiteriver gang member sentenced to prison

Phoenix, Arizona (AP) May 2010

Authorities say a 31-year-old man who’s a known gang member has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for drug and weapon offenses on the Fort Apache Reservation.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Leo Nachu Jr., of Whiteriver, was sentenced for possession of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime. He pleaded guilty in the case on Feb. 4.

Authorities say Nachu was running from law enforcement on Nov. 11, 2008, when he discarded the backpack in his possession. Inside the backpack were numerous plastic bags of drugs individually packaged for sale, a firearm with additional rounds of ammunition and a large amount of cash.

Authorities say Nachu’s fingerprints were found on some of the bags of drugs and the firearm.
