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

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Bogar Mendez-Marquez, 44, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced June 14, 2024, in federal court in Omaha for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine. Chief United State District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Mendez-Marquez to 87 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Mendez-Marquez is released from prison, he will begin a 4-year term of supervised release.

Between July 18, 2022, through February 27, 2023, Mendez-Marquez reached an agreement to distribute over 50 grams of actual meth to others within the District of Nebraska. Mendez-Marquez voluntarily and intentionally joined this agreement and knew the purpose of the agreement was to distribute meth.          

On or about July 18, 2022, law enforcement conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle in Omaha in which Mendez-Marquez was located. Officers seized 2 grams of meth from Mendez-Marquez. 

Mendez-Marquez admitted that he mailed 5 pounds of meth for the drug trafficking organization.

On or about February 27, 2023, law enforcement conducted a controlled buy against Mendez-Marquez and a co-conspirator in Omaha.  Law enforcement organized the drug deal with Mendez-Marquez’s co-conspirator and the co-conspirator informed the undercover agent that they needed to acquire more meth from their source of supply, which was Mendez-Marquez. The co-conspirator met with Mendez-Marquez and acquired approximately a quarter pound of meth and sold it to the undercover agent.  Lab results confirmed the substance was 100.5 grams of actual meth.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
