|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 41-year-old Kansas City woman has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison without parole for distributing hundreds of kilograms of cocaine in Jackson County.|
U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson says Tamiko Grandison was convicted in August and sentenced Tuesday for her role in a drug conspiracy in which she delivered the cocaine for her then-boyfriend, Jiles Johnson.
Dickinson says Johnson brought cocaine to Kansas City in 30- and 50-gallon drums and broke it down into kilogram quantities in Grandison's basement. Prosecutors say she stored the drugs at her residence until it was delivered.
Johnson is being prosecuted in a separate case in the Northern District of Georgia, where the government alleges that tons of cocaine were smuggled across the Mexican border and distributed throughout the U.S.
