Arizona Woman Sentenced for Meth Possession

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Senior United States District Judge Richard G. Kopf sentenced Debbie Neumann, 52, of Tucson, Arizona, to 120 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.

Debbie Neumann was a passenger of a vehicle driven by her husband, Troy, when they were stopped for speeding in Nebraska.  Troopers searched the rented vehicle and found a small lock box hidden within the clothing of one of the duffel bags located in the trunk.  Inside the lock box were eight baggies containing 7.6 ounces of methamphetamine that was greater than 95% pure.  Neumann pled guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute on July 17, 2013. 

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol.
