An Arleta man was sentenced Wednesday to five years in federal prison for his role in a black-market “hawala” money laundering scheme that transferred about $4.5 million on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel and its drug trafficking affiliates.

Sucha Singh, 54, was also ordered by U.S. District Judge Christina A. Snyder to serve three years of supervised release following his 63-month prison sentence. Singh was allowed to remain free pending a Jan. 17 self-surrender date.
