Norfolk Man Sentenced to more than 11 years in Prison for Conspiring to Distribute Methamphetamine and Possession of Firearms

United States Attorney Joseph P. Kelly announced that Chadwick Lynn Board, 31, of Norfolk, Nebraska, was sentenced on April 9, 2018, to 137 months in prison by United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp. Board had previously pled guilty after Madison County Investigators executed a search warrant on his Norfolk residence on March 2, 2017. Inside the residence, investigators located 23 firearms including handguns, sawed-off shotguns, assault rifles, and drug paraphernalia indicative of methamphetamine distribution. At the time, Board was a convicted felon known to be distributing methamphetamine from the residence.         

Because Board possessed a firearm in connection with drug trafficking, a consecutive five year prison term was added to his sentence. After serving his sentence Board will be required to serve a Term of Supervised Release of 5 years.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Madison County Sheriff’s Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
