Lincoln Man Sentenced for Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Dylan D. Dahlgren, 27, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was sentenced today to 19 years and seven months in federal prison by Chief United States District John M. Gerrard for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of actual (pure) methamphetamine.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Following the prison term, Dahlgren will serve five years on supervised release.

In August of 2019, narcotics investigators received information indicating that a package containing 10 pounds of methamphetamine was being sent to Dahlgren through the mail.  U.S. Postal Inspectors found a package addressed to the home of one of Dahlgren’s relatives in Lincoln and scheduled for delivery on August 15, 2019.  The package was mailed from California and was big enough to contain 10 pounds of methamphetamine.  The package was seized and searched.  It contained five packages of methamphetamine, containing at least 1,600 grams of methamphetamine actual.  On August 16, 2019, investigators made a controlled delivery of the package, containing one of the five packages of methamphetamine, to Dahlgren at the Lincoln residence of his relative.  Dahlgren was arrested.  The house was searched, and the package was found inside the residence.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
