Ohio Man Sentenced for Methamphetamine Possession

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

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Stephen Clark, 36, of Akron, Ohio, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Clark to 66 months’ imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a five-year term of supervised release.

On July 16, 2020, DEA agents at the Omaha bus terminal identified a suspicious suitcase that had arrived on a bus from Denver. Agents asked the passengers, including Clark, if the suitcase belonged to them and no one claimed it. Considering the suitcase abandoned, agents searched it and found 12 pounds of methamphetamine inside. Surveillance footage from the bus company showed Clark in possession of the suitcase in Denver.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Agency.
