OMAHA, Neb. -- A man received a three-year sentence on Friday for drug-related charges like distribution of methamphetamine and will be deported once his sentence is finished.

Officials said 59-year-old Salvador Rodriguez-Portillo was sentenced for distribution of meth, conspiracy to distribute, and possession with intent to distribute meth. Rodriguez-Portillo received three years (36 months) of jail time and will also be deported by U.S. immigration authorities to start a five-year term of supervised release after his prison release. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, the Drug Enforcement Administration and local investigators set up a half-pound purchase of meth from a Mexico-based supplier on Oct. 15, 2019. Rodriguez-Portillo delivered the meth to a cooperating informant for $2,000. Investigators watched Rodriguez-Portillo and 21-year-old Daniel Galvan-Salas at 45-year-old Jesus Godinez-Contreras' home in Omaha on March 19, 2020. Investigators said they saw Galvan-Salas load a shop vac filled with meth into Rodriguez-Portillo's green SUV in front of Godinez-Contreras.

Investigators said they approached Rodriguez-Portillo at his job to request an interview on May 13, 2020. Rodriguez-Portillo agreed to talk to them and reportedly admitted to delivering meth.

According to court documents, Rodriguez-Portillo and Galvan-Salas pled guilty before trial. A federal jury found Godinez-Contrerasguilty of conspiracy in the same case on April 8, 2022. Galvan-Salas was sentenced to imprisonment for 32 months on April 26, 2022, while Godinez-Contreras is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 4, 2022.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Omaha Field Division, and the Omaha Police Department.
