Omaha Man Sentenced for Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine

January 8, 2014

On January 8, 2014, Davaughn Richard Lavell Perkins, age 24 of Omaha, was sentenced to five years in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute 28 grams or more of cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine.  Following the prison sentence, Perkins will serve five years on supervised release.  He was also ordered to forfeit $472 in cash to the United States. 

On July 23, 2013, officers of the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at a Lincoln apartment.  Upon entry into the living room, officers found Davaughn Perkins on the floor and another individual on the couch.  Small amounts of crack were found in the living room.  During a search of Perkins' person, officers found a total of $472 in cash.

Perkins was arrested and taken to the Lancaster County Jail where he was searched as part of the booking process.  During that search, a Lancaster County Corrections Officer saw Perkins attempt to conceal something in his hand.  The officer obtained the item from Perkins, and it was found to be a baggie containing cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine, weighing 36.6 grams.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
