Fayetteville, Arkansas - Kenneth Elser, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Oscar Ceballos, age 31, of Rogers, was sentenced today to 87 months in federal prison followed by four years of supervised release and was ordered to pay a $2,400 fine on one count of Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. The Honorable Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.

According to court records, in early 2016, investigators with the Springdale Police Department received information from a confidential source concerning Ceballos distributing methamphetamine. According the source, Ceballos facilitated his distribution by moving between high end hotels in the area. In February of 2016, officers observed Ceballos loadings items into a UHAUL truck. After making contact officers detected the smell of marijuana. A subsequent search revealed drug paraphernalia, a firearm, $4,950.00, and 96.9 grams of actual methamphetamine.

Ceballos was indicted by a federal grand jury in November, 2016 and pleaded guilty in January, 2017.

This case was investigated by the Springdale Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Kim Harris prosecuted the case for the United States.
