LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Lincoln man will spend over 17 years behind bars after he was caught with meth in his coat pockets, the U.S. Attorney’s Office says.

On Jan. 4, 2022, a person working with authorities bought cocaine from Norman, according to the attorney’s office.

After the sale, investigators found Norman in a car parked at a Lincoln business.

Authorities then searched the car and found cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms, ecstasy, hydrocodone tablets and LSD.

A digital scale, numerous bags and other drug-related items were found in the car, the attorney’s office says.

During a search of Norman, authorities found 1½ pounds of meth and $816 in his coat pockets, according to the attorney’s office.

After his prison sentence, Norman will serve seven years on supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system.
