Lavon J. Owens, 35, of Lakewood, Colo. conspired to distribute cocaine base and powder cocaine from 2007 to 2011, U.S. Attorney Deb Gilg said.

Gilg said Owens and other persons transported the drugs from the Denver area to the North Platte area.

Owens was held personally responsible for the distribution of at least 196 grams (about seven ounces) of cocaine base (aka crack cocaine) and at least 100 grams (about 3.5 ounces) of powder cocaine. He will serve four years of supervised release after he gets out of prison, Gilg said.

This case was investigated by the CODE (Cooperating Drug Enforcement) task force comprised of law enforcement agencies in a 22-county area in west-central/southwest Nebraska, including the North Platte Police Department, the sheriff’s offices in Dawson, Lincoln, Red Willow and Frontier counties, the Nebraska State Patrol, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
