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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Dale Clayton Gaver III, 31, to a 60-month term of imprisonment today.  Gaver, of Omaha, pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine and Marijuana. After completion of his prison term, Gaver will begin a four-year term of supervised release. 

In early 2019, investigators determined that Gaver was distributing cocaine, marijuana, and tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) cartridges used in vaping devices.  During the search of his residence, investigators seized quantities of cocaine and marijuana, as well as $44,202.00 stashed in various places throughout the house.  The cash was ordered forfeited to the United States at sentencing.

Gaver was interviewed and admitted to receiving multi-ounce quantities of cocaine on multiple occasions, which he then distributed to customers within the Omaha metropolitan area.

The case was primarily investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Omaha Field Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, and the Omaha Police Department.
