Lincoln Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine
United States Attorney, Deborah R. Gilg, announced that on January 6, 2017, Ryan Homer Dittmer, 40, of Lincoln, was sentenced to eight years and one month (97 months) for his role in a conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a substance containing methamphetamine between October of 2013, and February of 2016. Information obtained by law enforcement indicated that Dittmer was responsible for the distribution of at least 1.5 kilograms, (approximately three pounds) of methamphetamine during that time. In January of 2016, Dittmer was contacted by Lincoln Police officers, and he was found in possession of approximately 1 ⅔ ounces of methamphetamine. At that time, he told officers that he had been selling quantities of methamphetamine of one ounce or more for over a year, and the majority of his customers were buying quantities large enough to sell to other persons.
This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
