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

Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Jesus Guillen Lopez, 46, of Alvordton, Ohio, was sentenced today in federal court in Lincoln, Nebraska, for possession with intent to distribute 100 grams or more of fentanyl and 5 kilograms or more of cocaine.  United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Lopez to 87 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a two-year term of supervised release.

On April 16, 2021, a Nebraska State Patrol trooper stopped a Chevy Traverse on I-80 for following too close. Lopez was the driver and told the trooper he was coming from Sacramento, California.  Lopez gave law enforcement permission to search the vehicle.  Law enforcement located 12.9 pounds of fentanyl and 14 pounds of cocaine in the engine compartment of the vehicle.

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol.
