OMAHA, Neb. -- A 42-year-old man with northeast Nebraska ties is heading to prison on a federal methamphetamine conviction.

U.S. Attorney Steven Russell announced that Massey Allen, who lives in both Omaha and South Sioux City, was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Omaha for distribution of methamphetamine. 

Chief U.S. District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Allen to 87 months in prison. There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a four-year term of supervised release.

On June 21, 2022, Allen sold methamphetamine to a cooperating witness working with law enforcement. Forensic testing by a crime laboratory confirmed 139 grams of methamphetamine.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Omaha Police Department, and the Southwest Iowa Narcotics Task Force.
