Oxford Woman Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine and Fentanyl

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

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Samantha Miller, 31, of Oxford, Nebraska, was sentenced February 16, 2024 in federal court in Lincoln, Nebraska, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and fentanyl. Senior United States District Court Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Miller to 60 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Miller’s release from prison, she will begin a 5-year term of supervised release.

From July 2021 to July 2022, Miller and others worked together to sell methamphetamine and fentanyl in and around Kearney, Nebraska. Miller was identified after a confidential informant purchased meth from a different drug dealer, who told the confidential informant he had to pick up the meth from a different location. Law enforcement followed that drug dealer to Miller’s residence, where the drug dealer obtained the meth and then provided to the confidential informant. During the course of the investigation, law enforcement learned that Miller was working with others to deal meth and fentanyl and sending money from drug proceeds back to Mexico.

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol and FBI.
