Omaha Woman Sentenced in Drug Conspiracy

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

Acting United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Haley Rose Marie Coffman, 25, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on November 16, 2022, in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for her participation in a methamphetamine drug conspiracy. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Coffman to 170 months’ imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system. After her release from prison, she will begin a five-year term of supervised release.

On October 6, 2021, deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Metro Fugitive Task Force were attempting to locate Coffman, who had an outstanding felony warrant for violating her bond conditions on a charge of possessing methamphetamine in Douglas County court. 

Responding to a tip, law enforcement located Coffman at an Omaha area motel. Law enforcement set up surveillance and observed Coffman and two others leaving the hotel and getting into a vehicle, which law enforcement then approached.   

The driver of the vehicle then attempted to escape, striking a law enforcement vehicle occupied by a deputy, another vehicle, and the side of the motel before fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed.  The driver then lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a construction site.  All parties then fled on foot but were apprehended a short time later.   

The vehicle was impounded and inventoried. More than 300 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, and hypodermic needles were found in a bag on the floorboard.

Co-defendant Dustin C. Vogel is scheduled for trial on February 7, 2023.  Co-defendant Jonathan Miller was sentenced on August 24, 2022, to 205 months for his role in the methamphetamine conspiracy and assaulting an officer with a dangerous or deadly weapon.  When released, he will serve a three-year term of supervised release. 

This case was investigated by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Metro Fugitive Task Force.
