Acting United States Attorney Susan T.

Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Ordaz to 60 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a 2-year term of supervised release.

On September 28, 2021, law enforcement utilized a cooperating witness (CW) to make a controlled buy of methamphetamine from Ordaz. The controlled buy took place in the CW's vehicle in the area of 23rd and Elm Streets in Omaha.  The CW purchased 46 grams of methamphetamine with a purity of 95%, as confirmed by a forensic laboratory analysis.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
