United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Derrick Lloyd, 29, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for possession with intent to distribute 10 grams or more of fentanyl analogue.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Lloyd to 84 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a 4-year term of supervised release.

On July 20, 2021, Omaha Police conducted a traffic stop for going through a red light at 42nd Street and Fontenelle Boulevard.  Officers made contact with the driver, who was Lloyd, who indicated he had personal use marijuana in the vehicle.  Officers searched the vehicle, and underneath the center console armrest, located a plastic bag with 821 fentanyl pills.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
