Posted Jul 30, 2020 3:03 PM

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Nathan Goulding, 28, of Paxton, Nebraska, was sentenced today to 37 months in prison by United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. There is no parole in the federal system. Upon his release from prison, Goulding will serve four years of supervised release.

On or about April 9, 2019, Nebraska State Patrol investigators and the CODE (Central Nebraska Cooperative Operation for Drug Enforcement) Task Force contacted Goulding and Logan Anderson at their residence in Paxton. A distinct odor of marijuana was coming from the residence.  Officers applied for and received a signed search warrant for the property and vehicles on the property. Evidence taken from the search warrant included approximately 65 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale, and numerous devices used to consume drugs. 

Anderson pleaded guilty in December, 2019, for the same offense.  She is awaiting sentencing, which is currently scheduled for August 12, 2020. 

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol and the CODE Task Force.
