Omaha Resident Sentenced to 180 Months in Prison for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA- On July 28, 2016, Steven B. Davis, a 58 year-old resident of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger to 180 months in prison, and 3 years of supervised release to follow the term of imprisonment, for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Kevin E. VanderSchel.

On April 13, 2016, a jury in the Southern District of Iowa found Davis guilty of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. The charge against Davis was the result of an investigation by law enforcement of methamphetamine trafficking that took place between Omaha, Nebraska, and Audubon County, Iowa. The evidence at trial showed that from as early as June of 2014, continuing through August of 2014, Davis conspired with others to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine in the Southern District of Iowa.

The investigation was conducted by the Iowa Department of Public Safety, Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
