Lincoln Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on July 9, 2012, a 39-year-old Lincoln man was sentenced to 121 months in prison for his involvement in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in the Lincoln area between May of 2010 and July of 2011. Following the prison term, Vitaly Petrov Revenkov will serve five years on supervised release.

Information provided to law enforcement indicated that Revenkov was responsible for the distribution of between 1.5 kilograms (approximately three pounds) and five kilograms (11 pounds) of methamphetamine. In June 2011, Lincoln Police officers observed Revenkov involved in what they suspected to be a drug transaction. On the following day, officers contacted Revenkov at his residence and found him to be in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine.

The matter was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force, which includes officers of the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department.
