For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that David Rogers, 35, of Omaha Nebraska, was sentenced today by Judge Robert F. Rossiter to 120 months (10 years) incarceration for conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute. There is no parole in the federal system.  His term of incarceration will be followed by a five-year term of supervised release.

On October 18, 2018, a Dodge County Deputy Sheriff conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Rogers for crossing a fog line. During the stop, a K9 indicated to the odor of narcotics coming from within the vehicle. A search of the vehicle revealed pipes, a scale, multiple baggies, several knives, and a personal safe containing more than 110 grams of actual methamphetamine. During a post-arrest interview, Rogers admitted to distributing half-pound quantities of methamphetamine in the previous month.

This case was investigated by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department.
