United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Terrance Traynham, age 27, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced in federal court on February 23, 2022, in Omaha for being a felon in possession of a firearm, possessing a stolen firearm, and carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Traynham to 106 months of imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After completing his term of imprisonment, Traynham will begin a 5-year term of supervised release.
On July 18, 2020, officers arrested Traynham in an Omaha hotel. On his hip, Traynham was carrying a stolen Glock 19, 9 mm pistol. He was carrying 86 fentanyl pills in his pocket which he intended to distribute. Traynham was prohibited from possessing firearms because of prior felony convictions for delivery, distribution, dispensing, manufacturing, or possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance (2016) and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving (2019).
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Omaha Police Department and was part of an operation by the Greater Omaha Safe Streets Task Force.
