Efrain Veiga, the 64-year-old founder and former owner of Lincoln Road’s Yuca, was sentenced Wednesday to 24 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. The DEA began an investigation into Veiga’s drug-trafficking activities back in November 2014, during which time the feds conducted a controlled purchase of meth from Veiga at his Miami Beach apartment, during which the restaurateur sold approximately 70 grams of the drug in exchange for $3,600.
