TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Three members of a Patagonia family have been sentenced to prison for drug trafficking.

Federal prosecutors say 34-year-old Fabian Monge got a 12 1/2-year sentence while his older sister Isabel Monge-Sierras received a seven-year prison term.

Their younger sister Mary Francis (Monge) Carlson was sentenced to five years while 49-year-old stash house operator Frank Lopez got a 7 1/2-year term.

The four were convicted of conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana.

Fabian Monge also was convicted of aiding and abetting the possession with intent to distribute more than 100 kilograms of marijuana.

Authorities say the Monge family members had been smuggling marijuana from Mexico and transporting the bulk marijuana to Tucson and Phoenix since at least 2006.

They were arrested in 2010.
