Edgar Alfonso Lujan, 20, and Juan Jesus Vargas, 20, were sentenced Tuesday morning. Ector County Sheriff's deputies tried to pull over the pair for a traffic stop on August 30th in Odessa, after they got a tip that the two were dealing cocaine.
Vargas rammed the pickup that the two were being pulled over in into a police cruiser and then took off, leading police on a high speed chase through Odessa. At one point, Vargas and Lujan threw 141 grams of cocaine out the window of the truck, but a man in the area found the drugs and turned them over to police.
Lujan and Vargas pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine charges in November.
