Carlos Manriquez-Aviles was sentenced Friday to 14 years in federal prison for distributing large quantities of meth in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area.
Manriquez, 29, pled guilty to conspiracy, racketeering and money laundering.
In 2017, Manriquez distributed multi-pound quantities of meth and laundered drug proceeds through a Wells Fargo Bank account on behalf of Mexican drug traffickers, U.S. Attorney Joe Kelly said.
U.S. District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., handed down the sentence. There is no parole in the federal prison system.
Manriquez was convicted of conspiracy to distribute and possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute, use of facilities in interstate commerce in aid of racketeering, and conspiracy to commit money laundering, Kelly said.
The case was primarily investigated by the Omaha Field Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Criminal Investigations division of the Internal Revenue Service.
