Omaha Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Methamphetamine and a Firearm

Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Jackie Major, 46, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and using a firearm during a drug trafficking offense. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Major to consecutive sentences of 60 months on each count for a total term of 120 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison, Major will begin a three-year term of supervised release.

In July 2020 FBI Safe Streets Task Force officers utilized a confidential informant to order methamphetamine from Major. A search warrant of his West Omaha hotel room recovered 17 grams of methamphetamine and a Mossberg pump shotgun.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department. and the FBI Safe Streets Task Force as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
