Omaha Man Sentenced for Possession With Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine
Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced that on May 24, 2017, Carl Anthony Mangiameli, 52, of Omaha, was sentenced to 18 years and four months (220 months) in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Following the prison term, Mangiameli will serve five years on supervised release.
On August 28, 2015, Mangiameli was contacted by Lincoln Narcotics officers at a Lincoln truck stop. He was found to be in possession of 53 grams of pure methamphetamine and over $2000 in cash. Mangiameli admitted selling methamphetamine since 1999 and said he had gone to the truck stop to collect money from one of his methamphetamine customers and possibly sell additional methamphetamine to that person. Under the federal sentencing guidelines, Mangiameli was determined to be a career offender as a result of two prior Pottawattamie County, Iowa felony drug convictions and a 2005 federal conviction for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in the District of Nebraska. This resulted in a substantial enhancement to his sentencing range.
This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
