Nebraska Farmer Gets Prison for Meth Delivery

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 50-year-old Nebraska farmer who had 3 pounds of methamphetamine delivered to his home has been sentenced to federal prison.

Robert Bernt, of Phillips, on Wednesday was given 19 years behind bars. He must serve five years of supervised release when he leaves custody and must forfeit nearly $5,000 found in a search of his property.

Prosecutors say a box addressed to Bernt was noticed at a Grand Island parcel sorting center on June 6, 2012, and was taken to the Grand Island Police Department. A drug dog indicated the smell of drugs was present. Court records say investigators found meth inside the box.

Officers arrested Bernt after the package was delivered to his home.

He eventually pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy.
