Lincoln Man Sentenced for Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine and Heroin

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Porfirio Rodriguez Reyes, 39, of Lincoln, received sentences today of 57 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute five grams or more of actual methamphetamine and 57 months for possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin. Those sentences are to run concurrently (at the same time).  Following the prison term, Rodriguez Reyes will serve two years on supervised release.  However, it is likely he will be deported to Mexico after he is released from prison.

In February and March of 2018, a confidential informant working with the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force made two purchases of methamphetamine and five purchases of heroin from Rodriguez Reyes in Lincoln.  The largest purchase of methamphetamine occurred on March 2, 2018.  At that time, the confidential informant bought 78 grams of actual methamphetamine from Rodriguez Reyes.  The largest purchase of heroin was 108 grams on February 23, 2018.  The total amount of actual methamphetamine purchased from Rodriguez Reyes was 104 grams (approximately 3 ¾ ounces), and the total amount of heroin was 378 grams (13 ½ ounces).

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