Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced that on July 27, 2017, Olga A. Alfonso, 44, of Lincoln, was sentenced to 10 years (120 months) in prison for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more actual methamphetamine on April 25, 2016. Following the prison term, Alfonso will serve five years on supervised release.
On April 25, 2016, Lancaster County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a traffic accident on l-80 west of downtown Lincoln. Upon arrival at the scene of the accident, deputies were told the driver of a car involved in the accident had run from the scene. Witnesses described the driver as a female wearing a large green backpack. Deputies located the driver, Olga Alfonso, a short distance away. The backpack was found abandoned in some weeds. Inside the backpack, deputies found a Social Security card in Alfonso’s name, three baggies of methamphetamine containing at least 240 grams of pure methamphetamine and a digital scale with methamphetamine residue.
This case was investigated by the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department and the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
