An Omaha man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison in a drug and firearms investigation. Jarez Wilson had entered a guilty plea in the case.
Wilson, also known as Turk, entered the pleas to being a felon in possession of a firearm and using a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime.
He was arrested in October 2013 in a law enforcement initiative targeting gang violence in Omaha.
During the joint investigation between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Omaha Police Department, Wilson sold three firearms and more than a quarter pound of marijuana to two felons who were working with law enforcement as cooperating witnesses.
