Two Women Sentenced in Meth Trafficking Case
Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) – U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced that Randi Seferos, 25, of Boise, and Doreen Obrien, 44, of Caldwell, Idaho, were sentenced Wednesday to serve federal prison sentences for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge sentenced Seferos to 110 months in prison followed by ten years of supervised release; Obrien was sentenced to 63 months in prison and five years of supervised release.
According to information presented in court, Seferos pleaded guilty on October 7, 2013, to possession of 128 grams (approximately one-quarter pound) of methamphetamine with intent to deliver. Obrien pleaded guilty on September 27, 2013, to possession of 340 grams (about three-quarters of a pound) of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
Twenty defendants were charged in an 89-count indictment filed in May 2013. Fourteen defendants have been sentenced. Four have pleaded guilty to related charges and are awaiting sentencing. One has been dismissed, and another has not been apprehended.
The conspiracy involved two distribution cells in the Treasure Valley: one led by Jason Holmberg and one by Andrew Polney. Kenneth Jones in Sacramento, California, supplied multi-pound shipments of methamphetamine for transport to the Treasure Valley for distribution; also, a drug debt was owed by Jason Holmberg and unpaid for a large amount of methamphetamine obtained from Mexican sources of supply transshipped through Phoenix, Arizona, and transported to Idaho by co-defendant Randy Beal. The group operated from about June 2012 through the time of the various arrests on April 18, 2013 and May 23, 2013.
