Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Daniel Ariza-Garcia, to 10 years in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release.  Mr. Ariza-Garcia pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine on February 25, 2014.  Ariza-Garcia had been involved in the distribution of methamphetamine in the Lincoln and eastern Nebraska areas for several months. After his arrest, a search of Ariza-Garcia’s apartment uncovered nearly $40,000.00 in cash and 9.6 pounds of methamphetamine.  Ariza-Garcia is expected to be deported to his native Mexico after serving his prison sentence. This case was investigated by the FBI and the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force.
