Ogallala man indicted on federal drug chargesTell North Platte what you think

Brock Adkins of Ogallala has been indicted with possession with intent to distribute heroin and meth, U.S. Attorney Deb Gilg announced Friday.

The indictment alleges that less than 100 grams of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of heroin and 5 grams or more of actual methamphetamine were involved.

If convicted, Adkins faces a maximum of 40 years imprisonment, a $5 million fine, and at least 4 years of supervised release.

The indictment also charges Adkins with being a drug user in possession of a firearm. The maximum penalty of that charge is 10 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and 3 years of supervised release.

The indictment also contains a forfeiture allegation for $6,485 in United States currency, Gilg said.

These charges are a result of a search warrant executed on Oct. 11 in Ogallala.

Adkins was scheduled to make his first appearance in federal court on Friday, Gilg said.
