United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Wendi Reich, 43, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced February 1, 2024, in federal court in Omaha for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. United States District Court Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Reich to 90 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Reich’s release from prison, she will begin a 5-year term of supervised release.

On December 13, 2021, Omaha Police officers executed a search warrant on Wendi Reich’s Omaha residence and recovered 300 grams of meth from her possession. The investigation revealed that Reich was being supplied pound quantities of meth by codefendant Cornejo-Lopez, who pled guilty and was sentenced to 400 months’ imprisonment on October 25, 2023. 

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