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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced today that on September 3, 2019, Christopher S. Harmeier, 42, of Norfolk, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Harmeier to 63 months’ imprisonment. After completing his term of imprisonment, Harmeier will begin a two-year term of supervised release.

At the beginning of 2017, law enforcement began investigating a drug trafficking organization that was transporting large amounts of methamphetamine into Lincoln, Nebraska.  The methamphetamine was then redistributed to local distributors, which included Harmeier in Norfolk.  When the drug trafficking organization was taken down, Harmeier was in possession of two pounds of methamphetamine and $10,000.    

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, assisted by the Lincoln Police Department and Nebraska State Patrol.
