Last week, three men were arrested on felony drug charges after law enforcement stated they sold cocaine to an undercover officer throughout various locations in Lincoln. 

29-year-old Justin Snelling, 28-year-old Khaeiry Kheder, and 26-year-old Ahmed Almusa are suspected of selling over 38 grams of cocaine between October and December of last year, totaling more than $3,700 in profit. The substance the men sold was confirmed to be cocaine according to lab tests conducted last month.

Prosecutors charged Almusa with three counts of delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school and two counts of delivering a controlled substance. Snelling faces two counts of delivering a controlled substance and delivering a controlled substance charges. Kheder faces a delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school charge, as well as a delivering a controlled substance charge.

Delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school is considered a Class III felony, punishable up to a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and/or a $25,000 fine. While Snelling and Kheder are out on bond, Almusa remains in jail on a $50,000 bond.
