Amanda Samaroo was taken into custody on Monday morning in Omaha. She failed to return to CCC-L on March 4 after going to an employment agency in downtown Lincoln.

Samaroo’s sentence started March 22, 2018. She was sentenced to eight to 10 years for charges out of Douglas County that include the manufacture/distribution and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
