Omaha Woman Sentenced to 96 Months for Drug and Money Laundering Conspiracies | USAO-NE

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Autumn Lynn Vanosdol, 52, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine and for conspiracy to launder the proceeds from the drug conspiracy.  Vanosdol received a sentence of 96 months with a five-year term of supervised release to follow.  There is no parole in the federal system.

In mid-2017, a Drug Enforcement Administration led task force initiated Operation Dog Pound, which was a drug interdiction effort focused on an Omaha drug trafficking organization.  Court-authorized phone and text messaging intercepts established that Vanosdol, who was living in California at the time, sent multi-pound packages containing methamphetamine through the mail to the head of the organization, Keevan Dean.  During the course of the investigation, several of the packages were intercepted by law enforcement.  Vanosdol was held accountable for sending a total of 26 pounds of methamphetamine to Dean. 

Vanosdol was also intercepted on her phone making arrangements with Dean to have money wired or deposited into various accounts in an attempt to conceal the proceeds of the drug transactions.

Dean was convicted of drug and money laundering conspiracies and is set for sentencing on November 18, 2020. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Nebraska State Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Omaha Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
