Mexican Man Sentenced to Prison for Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

On October 8, 2014, Juan Carlos Garcia-Gamino, 26, a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced to 57 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in Lincoln.  Garcia-Gamino was ordered to serve four years on supervised release following the prison term.  However, it is likely he will be deported upon completion of his prison sentence.

In December of 2013 and January of 2014, Garcia-Gamino sold one-ounce quantities of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in Lincoln on three occasions.  On April 4, 2014, Garcia-Gamino was contacted in Lincoln and consented to a search of his car.  During that search, officers found 906 grams, (approximately two pounds), of a substance later found to contain methamphetamine. 

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