After he pleaded guilty in October 2021 to one count of distributing methamphetamine, a federal judge sentenced Ahmed Binyamin Alasiri, 45, a.k.a. Kevin Lamar to 188 months in federal prison for selling the four pounds of methamphetamine while he was on supervised release after a 2009 terrorism conviction. The judge sentenced him to another 24 months because he violated the terms of his supervised release. Alasiri sold the methamphetamine three times a year after being released from prison and while serving a term of federal supervised release. On July 24, 2020, Alasiri sold the buyer 430 grams of pure methamphetamine in exchange for $3,700. On August 6, 2020, Alasiri exchanged 435 grams of pure methamphetamine to the buyer for $3,700. On August 20, 2020, Alasiri distributed 877 grams of pure methamphetamine to the buyer in exchange for $7,400.

Alasiri's co-conspirators committed armed robberies of gas stations to raise money for attacks Alasari planned on U.S. military operations and Israeli and Jewish facilities in Southern California. Alasiri completed his prison sentence in September 2019.
