A west suburban man caught transporting a large quantity of methamphetamine has agreed to a plea deal that will send him to prison for more than 11 years.

Jaime N. Vasquez agreed Thursday to a sentence of 11½ years in prison and pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine, a Class X felony, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office. Associate Judge Clint Hull accepted the plea.

About 10:45 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2012, Vasquez was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over by a Kane County sheriff’s deputy for a traffic violation on I-88, according to prosecutors. Officers searching the vehicle found 580 grams of crystal meth, with a street value of about $45,000.

Vasquez,, 32, of the 500 block of East Broadway in Aurora, admitted he was transporting the drugs to sell in Minnesota, prosecutors said.

By law, he is eligible for day-for-day sentencing and will receive credit for about 886 days served in the Kane County jail. His $250,000 bond was revoked on conviction.
