Twin auctions will be held next week to sell two elaborate homes, one in Nebraska, the other in Iowa, both of which were seized by federal agents from a reported drug kingpin. I-R-S Special Agent Janine Meriweather says the suspect, Gary Storey, pleaded guilty to a variety of drug charges last year and agreed to let his homes and other property be taken by the feds and sold.Agent Meriweather says the homes, in Omaha and Carter Lake, are valued at more than a half-million dollars. Storey pleaded guilty to conspiring with others to distribute marijuana in Nebraska, Iowa and Arizona and used the proceeds to buy all sorts of items — which is called money-laundering. Meriweather says the government seized more than two-million dollars in currency and property from Storey. Besides the two homes, there was a truck, an S-U-V, motorcycles, lakefront properties, assets in a brokered account and more than 900-thousand dollars in cash. Storey’s serving eight years in prison. The auctions are scheduled for two P-M on October 16th. To view the homes, go to “www.treas.gov/auctions/customs/realprop.html”.
