Omaha Men Sentenced to Prison for Distributing Methamphetamine in Omaha, Nebraska

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced Friday that the Honorable Richard G. Kopf, U.S. District Court Judge, sentenced Carlos Navarro, 21, to 46 months imprisonment, and Erik Martinez, 22, to 57 months imprisonment, each to be followed by 3 years of supervised release.  They were both also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment, following their conviction for distribution of methamphetamine. 

On August 15, 2012, a cooperating witness bought 109 grams of methamphetamine from Martinez.  Martinez contacted Navarro who made the actual delivery.  On August 22, 2012, a meeting was set up between Martinez and the cooperator for the cooperator to pay for the methamphetamine.  Both Martinez and Navarro showed up, Martinez was given the money and they were arrested.    

Homeland Security Investigations and the Omaha Police Department were responsible for the investigation of this case.
