Former Fremont Man Sentenced for Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Troy Brewer, 50, formerly of Fremont, Nebraska, was sentenced on February 8, 2024, in federal court in Lincoln, Nebraska, for possession with intent to distribute 5 grams or more of methamphetamine. Senior United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Brewer to 30 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Brewer’s release from prison, he will begin a 4-year term of supervised release.

In the early morning hours of August 2, 2022, Brewer was in his vehicle when he was contacted by Fremont Police.  Based upon their observations, the officers searched the vehicle and found a pill bottle near the driver’s door.  Inside the bottle was 14 grams of actual methamphetamine.  They searched the car further and found Ziploc baggies in the center console and a digital scale with drug residue on it inside a backpack.  When Brewer pled guilty, he admitted he knew the drugs were in the vehicle and that he intended to distribute them.

This case was investigated by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and the Fremont Police Department.
