In February, Jaime Castillo Gomez pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. This week, he was sentenced to federal prison. The Southwest Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force and other law enforcment agencies in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area monitored a drug selling ring and arrested Gomez and several others.
Gomez entered the U.S. illegally in 1996. Authorities say he wound up in Omaha about four years later. When Gomez was arrested, authorities found more than three pounds of meth and a shotgun.
