FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 28, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on June 27, 2013, the Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon, U.S. District Court Judge, sentenced Maria Terrazas, age 38, of Omaha, to 156 months imprisonment for her role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Following the prison term, Terrazas will serve five years on supervised release.  

In 2011, the Omaha Police Department began investigating Maria Terrazas for conspiring with others to distribute over 4000 grams of methamphetamine.  In May, 2012, an undercover agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives began buying methamphetamine directly from Terrazas.  During the execution of a search warrant on Terrazas’s residence on July 16, 2012, officers found over four pounds of methamphetamine.  Terrazas was also in possession of a firearm at that time.
The matter was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the ATF.
