Fremont Man Sentenced to 5 years in Prison for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Rodrigo Delacruz, 27, of Fremont, Nebraska, was sentenced on October 27, 2014, to 5 years in prison by United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp. Delacruz had previously pled guilty after Fremont police officers responded to a domestic assault call on May 2, 2014. The investigation led to contact with Delacruz at a Fremont gas station.  Delacruz was found in possession of over 10 grams of actual methamphetamine , a scale, drug paraphernalia, and $1,797 in his coat. 

During a post arrest interview, Delacruz admitted to using and selling methamphetamine in the past. Because Delacruz possessed more than 5 grams of actual methamphetamine, he faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years. After serving his sentence Delacruz will be required to serve a Term of Supervised Release of 4 years.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Fremont Police Department and III CORPS Drug Task Force.
