California Man Sentenced for Drug and Gun Charges
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on September 23, 2015, a Sacramento, California, man was sentenced to 97 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and marijuana and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug offense. Anthony Shaquille Harris was sentenced to 37 months for the drug charge and a consecutive sentence of 60 months on the gun charge. He will serve three years on supervised release after he completes the prison terms. He was also ordered to pay $200 in special assessments.
Harris was arrested by officers of the Lincoln Police Department on February 16, 2015, after officers executed a search warrant at the Lincoln apartment where Harris was staying. During that search, officers found approximately 160 grams of methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana. Officers also found a 9mm handgun with a loaded magazine, a shotgun, and various types of ammunition.
This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
