U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Gilg said Torria Kae Gonzalez, 36, of Oklahoma City, conspired to sell 500 grams or more of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine between November 2010 and April 2011.

Prosecutors said Gonzalez was responsible for the distribution of 3-11 pounds of methamphetamine. Persons from the North Platte area made trips to Oklahoma City to buy methamphetamine from Gonzalez, and brought the meth back to Nebraska for resale in the North Platte, Kearney, and Lexington areas.

Following her prison term, Gonzalez will serve five years on supervised release, Gilg said.

When Gonzalez was indicted, she initially faced a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life imprisonment and a fine of up to $10,000,000.

The case was investigated by the CODE Task Force, consisting of law enforcement agencies throughout a 22-county area in west-central/southwest Nebraska, including the North Platte Police Department, Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Red Willow County Sheriff’s Office, Frontier County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska State Patrol, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
