Omaha Man Sentenced to more than 12 Years’ Imprisonment for Conspiring to Distribute Methamphetamine

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

Acting United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Baldemar Rodriguez Baldwin, 47, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced in Omaha on October 27, 2023, in federal court for Conspiracy to Distribute and Possession with Intent to Distribute more than 50 grams of Methamphetamine (actual). Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter Jr. sentenced Baldwin to 147 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Baldwin’s release from prison, he will begin a 5-year term of supervised release.

On August 25, 2021, law enforcement utilized a cooperating witness who purchased 104 grams of actual methamphetamine from Baldwin inside of his Omaha apartment.

On September 2, 2021, law enforcement along with Baldemar’s Probation Officer contacted Baldemar at his Omaha apartment to conduct a probation search. Baldemar was advised of his rights and the reason for the search. Baldemar admitted to purchasing a ½ pound of methamphetamine approximately one month prior and selling it to make some quick money. When told that no meth was found during the search, Baldemar said he must have gotten rid of it. The search did reveal a drug scale with residue that Baldemar said would be dirty as he had used it. At the time he sold the meth to the cooperating witness, Baldemar was on supervised release for a 2012 drug conviction in which he was sentenced to more than 10 years’ imprisonment.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
