United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Natasha Wolterman, 40, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine. United States District Court Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Wolterman to 10 years’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After completing her term of imprisonment, Wolterman will be required to serve a 5-year term of supervised release.
On June 5, 2019, Omaha Police detectives utilized a cooperating witness to collect drug proceeds from several methamphetamine suppliers inside of an Omaha hotel. Officers placed a video and audio recording device in the cooperator’s hotel room that captured the delivery of drug proceeds by Wolterman, who delivered $1,600 to the cooperator while discussing her drug trafficking. The cooperator had previously supplied Wolterman with 2 pounds of methamphetamine.
Another cooperating witness was arrested on June 7, 2019 after he was found in possession of methamphetamine and a gun outside of an Omaha hotel. Prior to his arrest, the cooperator was seen riding in a car with Wolterman, who was released prior to an inventory search of the car. More than 5 grams of actual methamphetamine were found in a woman’s purse inside of the car. During an interview with the cooperator, he described Wolterman as dealing in pound quantities of methamphetamine.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
