Description: Omaha, Nebraska criminal law lawyer represented Defendant charged with
Methamphetamine Possession on Amtrak.
On January 16, 2021, a Nebraska State Patrol trooper doing routine interdiction work encountered Thomas on the Amtrak train in Omaha. Thomas had a suitcase at his feet below the seat in which he was sitting. The trooper and Thomas engaged in a conversation about Thomas’s travel, during which the trooper noticed signs of possible drug trafficking.
Thomas consented to have a drug detection canine sniff the suitcase. The canine alerted to the suitcase and it was searched. Inside, agents found seven bundles of methamphetamine weighing a total of 5,049 grams. One bundle, weighing 467 grams, was submitted to the crime laboratory for testing, which determined it was 100 percent pure methamphetamine.
Outcome: Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Thomas to 120 months imprisonment. After release, he will begin 5-year term of supervised release.
