During the first few months of 2018, Guevara-Zamudio conspired with others to distribute methamphetamine throughout the Omaha/Council Bluffs metropolitan area.  Guevara-Zamudio participated in several pound and multi-pound methamphetamine transactions in May of 2018 and rented a storage unit in Omaha for the use of a drug trafficking organization.  Guevara-Zamudio was arrested on June 5, 2018, at a residence in Honey Creek, Iowa.  The residence was rented through Airbnb by a co-conspirator and used by Guevara-Zamudio and two co-defendants.  Investigators seized more than 10 lbs. of methamphetamine, several firearms including an AR-15-style assault rifle, magazines, ammunition, and several prescription medications.  Guevara-Zamudio’s Permanent Resident card was also found in the home.  Guevara-Zamudio is the eighth defendant to be sentenced in the case.  Guevara-Zamudio will be removed from the United States to Mexico by immigration authorities upon completion of the term of imprisonment. 

The case was primarily investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration – Omaha Field Division, the Omaha Police Department, and the Southwest Iowa Narcotics Task Force.
