Meth dealer sentenced to 12 yearsTell North Platte what you think

Jose Luis Sandoval, 47, was sentenced Monday to more than 12 years in federal prison for dealing methamphetamine and having a firearm.

The 147-month (12.25 years) sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp.

Sandoval previously pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute meth as well as possession of a firearm in relation to drug trafficking.

A witness, cooperating with law officers, made several purchases of more than an ounce of meth from Sandoval in his home in South Sioux City, which is on the northeast border of Nebraska.

Law officers executed a search warrant on May 9, 2016 and found four firearms, a security monitor, a flak jacket, drug distribution paraphernalia and unspecified quantities of methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Robert Stuart said in announcing the sentence.

The sentence for distribution was seven years; the sentence was five years for the firearm charge.

The case was the result of an investigation by the South Sioux City Police Department and U.S Drug Enforcement Agency’s Tri-State Drug Task Force, Stuart said.
