SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Roberto Daniel Gomez Gonzalez, 27, of Sacramento, was sentenced today to 12 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.

According to court documents, on March 30, 2020, law enforcement agents searched Gomez Gonzalez’s residence and seized more than 3 kilograms of 95% pure methamphetamine, 1,000 fentanyl pills, 228 grams of heroin, a loaded firearm, and over $8,000 in cash.  

This case is the product of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Cameron L. Desmond and Alexis Klein prosecuted the case.

This prosecution is part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) Strike Force Initiative, which provides for the establishment of permanent multi-agency task force teams that work side-by-side in the same location. The Sacramento Strike Force is a co-located model enables agents from different agencies to collaborate on intelligence-driven, multi-jurisdictional operations to disrupt and dismantle the most significant drug traffickers, money launderers, gangs, and transnational criminal organizations. The specific mission of the Sacramento Strike Force is to identify, investigate, disrupt, and dismantle the most significant drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) and transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) shipping narcotics, firearms, and money through the Eastern District of California, thereby reducing the flow of these criminal resources in California and the rest of the United States. The Sacramento Strike Force leads intelligence-driven investigations targeting the leadership and support elements of these DTOs and TCOs operating within the Eastern District of California, regardless of their geographic base of operations.
