Norfolk Man Sentenced to More than 20 Years for Conspiring to Distribute Methamphetamine
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Martin Santiago-Robles, 44, of Norfolk, Nebraska, was sentenced on February 27, 2012, to 262 months in prison by United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp, for his involvement in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in the Norfolk area in November of 2010, where Santiago-Robles sold more than 200 grams of “ice” methamphetamine to a cooperating witness working for law enforcement. Santiago-Robles’ sentence was enhanced by more than 10 years because he had two prior felony drug convictions. Santiago-Robles is a citizen and national of Mexico, and will be deported upon the completion of his prison term.
This case was the result of a joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Nebraska State Patrol, the Fremont Police Department, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the West Point Police Department, the Blair Police Department, and the Homeland Security Investigations.
