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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announces that Seth Perina, age 43, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and marijuana. Perina was also sentenced for possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking. Senior United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Perina to 90 months of imprisonment. The sentence included 60 months’ imprisonment because Perina possessed firearms in connection with the drug charge. After completing his term of imprisonment, Perina will begin a 3-year term of supervised release.

On September 11, 2018, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant on Perina’s Fremont, Nebraska, residence. Inside, officers located Perina and a safe containing more than 50 jars of marijuana, drug packaging materials, $12,200 in cash, and more than 7 grams of actual methamphetamine. A gun case containing ammunition and two .22 caliber handguns were found behind the safe.       

This case was investigated by III CORPS Drug Task Force.
