A Fremont man was sentenced to prison Monday morning in Dodge County District Court after being arrested in mid-February on a drug offense.
Gregory D. Major, 25, was sentenced by District Court Judge John Samson to spend the next 2 to 4 years incarcerated in the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services for the felony charge of being in possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – methamphetamine.
Major was credited with spending 106 days in Saunders County Jail.
Major was arrested Feb. 18 after officers with the Fremont Police Department were dispatched to a fuel station located at 3008 E. 23rd Ave in regard to a disturbance complaint, a warrantless arrest affidavit shows.
Upon arrival, contact was made with a man who had been reported as missing earlier in the day. The male individual told officers that Major had forced him to ingest methamphetamine. Officers noted that the man’s behavior was consistent with having ingested narcotics.
Major, who was at the scene, was out of jail on bond for a previous drug violation, court documentation shows. During a search of Major, drugs were located on his person, as well as hidden inside a pair of black wireless headphones.
In total, four self-seal baggies were located; all of which contained a white powdery substance testing positive as methamphetamine. Court records show the baggies weighed .57 grams, 1.25 grams, .042 grams and .062 grams.
Major was taken into custody by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office for transport following sentencing.
