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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Timothy Earl Agee, 54, of Bellevue, Nebraska, was sentenced today to 280 months in prison by United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., for conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute five hundred grams or more of a mixture of methamphetamine. In addition to the conspiracy charge, Agee was also convicted of money laundering.  Following his prison term, Agee will serve five years of supervised release.  Finally, Agee was required to forfeit a 2007 Mercedes Benz and $6,132.

Beginning in mid-2017, a Drug Enforcement Administration-led task force initiated Operation Dog Pound, which was a drug interdiction effort focused on a local drug trafficking organization headed by Keevan Dean.  As part of the investigation, numerous Title III wire and electronic intercepts were approved.  Over the course of the investigation, several conspirators were identified that were distributing pound quantities of methamphetamine. 

On November 16, 2018, numerous arrest and search warrants were executed on conspirators and locations utilized by the organization, including Agee and his residence.  At the time of his arrest, Agee was in possession of 267 grams of methamphetamine, a stolen firearm, $6,132, and the 2007 Mercedes Benz.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, Nebraska State Patrol, Omaha Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, Border Patrol, and U.S. Attorney’s Office were the investigating agencies.
