United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on October 9, 2013, an indictment was unsealed charging Jamie Eugene Tuggle, age 38, of Lincoln, with possession with the intent to distribute five grams or more of methamphetamine on June 30, 2013. The charge resulted from the execution of a search warrant at Tuggle’s Lincoln residence.
The possible penalty is not less than five years nor more than 40 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000,000. Following any prison term, there would be a term of supervised release of not less than four years. The indictment also seeks forfeiture of $301 in cash to the United States. Tuggle is scheduled to make his first appearance in federal court on Tuesday, October 15, 2013.
The matter was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force—which includes officers of the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department—and by the Nebraska State Patrol.
