Self-proclaimed Vagos motorcycle club member sentenced to ten years in federal prison

David Allen Oney Jr., 35, of Nampa, Idaho, was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison today for distributing methamphetamine, Acting U.S. Attorney Rafael Gonzalez announced. Oney will have to serve a five-year period of supervised release following his term of imprisonment and pay a $100 special assessment. Oney entered his guilty plea to the charge on March 28, 2017.

 

According to court documents, Oney, a self-proclaimed member of the Vagos motorcycle club, sold over 100 grams of pure methamphetamine over the course of three separate drug buys. During the last controlled purchase of methamphetamine, law enforcements agents discovered that Oney had brought his young daughter along. Oney had been held at the Ada County Jail while awaiting sentencing. During that time, Oney threatened the life of a deputy, struck another inmate in the head and attempted to manipulate his jail cell door, among other violations.

 

This case was investigated by the Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crime Task. The Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crime Task Force is comprised of federal, state and local agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Boise Police Department; Ada County Sheriff’s Office; Caldwell Police Department; Nampa Police Department; Meridian Police Department; Canyon County Sheriff’s Office; and Idaho Department of Probation and Parole.
