United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Jessica Anzaldo, 34, of Omaha, Nebraska was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and heroin, and possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime. Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Anzaldo to 10 years’ imprisonment on the drug charge and a consecutive 5 years on the gun charge. After completing her term of imprisonment, Anzaldo will be required to serve a 5-year term of supervised release as there is no parole in the federal system.
On September 10, 2019, Anzaldo sold an undercover officer more than 50 grams of actual methamphetamine at an Omaha location. On September 13, 2019, Anzaldo again sold the undercover more than 50 grams of actual methamphetamine in Omaha. Anzaldo was placed under arrest after the sale and a search warrant on her Omaha residence revealed a quarter pound of methamphetamine, approximately 10 grams of heroin, and a gun within a small safe located in her bedroom. During a post arrest interview, Anzaldo admitted to distributing pound quantities of methamphetamine during the past 5 or 6 months. While being booked into corrections, three additional baggies of heroin were found on her person with a total weight of approximately 25 grams.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
