OMAHA, Neb. -- A man from Omaha was sentenced to five years in prison on a meth-related charge.

Acting U.S Attorney Steven A. Russell said 33-year-old Samuel Tague, of Omaha, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Friday for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Tague will serve 60 months in prison and then a five-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, the Omaha Police Department used a search warrant at a hotel room while looking for Tague, who had an active felony arrest warrant on Feb. 5, 2021. Officers found a baggie of meth weighing 37.8 grams inside of a hooded sweatshirt along with digital scales and other plastic baggies in the hotel room.

Officials said Tague told the officers the sweatshirt was his, and they found his ID with the meth. Laboratory testing confirmed that the methamphetamine was 95% pure.

This case was investigated by OPD.
