Lincoln Man Sentenced for Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

On October 9, 2014, Inocencio Segura Jimenez, 32, of Lincoln, was sentenced to five years and ten months (70 months) in prison for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.  Following the prison term, Segura will serve three years on supervised release. 

On September 5, 2013, a search warrant was served by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force at Segura’s Lincoln residence.  Segura was present at the time the warrant was served, and he was found in possession of a roll of black electrical tape.  That black electrical tape matched tape which had been used to seal a plastic container found buried in the backyard of the residence.  That container was opened and found to contain 176.43 grams of methamphetamine with a purity of greater than 95%.  Information provided to law enforcement indicated that Segura intended to distribute that methamphetamine to other persons in the Lincoln area.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
