April 1, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on April 1, 2013, Aaron Raul Nunez, 25, of Lincoln, was sentenced to 10 years (120 months) in prison for his involvement in a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana between January of 2006 and September 21, 2012.  Nunez’s sentence was ordered to be run concurrently with a state sentence of 20 months to 5 years imposed on March 29, 2013, in Lancaster County District Court after Nunez’s probation was revoked in a related case.  Following the prison term, Nunez will serve five years on supervised release.  He was also ordered to forfeit $6,242 in cash to the United States. 

Nunez was held responsible for the distribution of at least 5 kilograms (approximately 11 pounds) of cocaine, at least 50 grams (approximately 1 ¾ ounces) of methamphetamine, and at least 10 kilograms (22 pounds) of marijuana in the Lincoln area.  On September 21, 2012, Nunez was arrested on a federal warrant and was found in possession of $1,980.00 in cash.  A search warrant was executed at Nunez’s Lincoln apartment and garage where officers found approximately ¾ ounce of cocaine, more than 1 pound of marijuana, and an additional $4,262.00 in cash. 

The matter was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force, which includes officers of the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriff's Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, (FBI), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department.
