Falls City man sentenced to Federal Prison

(KLZA)-- A Falls City man has been sentenced to more than 7 years in federal prison on drug charges, a weapons charge and being in possession of stolen property.

38-year-old John Pohlman was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Lincoln for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of ammunition.

Senior U.S. District Court Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Pohlman to 87 months imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. Following Pohlman's release from prison, he will begin a 5-year term of supervised release.

On February 6, 2023, Richardson County Sheriff's Deputies served a search warrant at Pohlman's residence in Falls City. During the search, deputies found marijuana, meth, drug paraphernalia, stolen electronics, and a 9 mm handgun magazine containing seven rounds of ammunition.

Marijuana was found in a pickup parked outside the house.

Pohlman had previously been convicted in federal court in Nebraska for possession with intent to distribute meth.

The case was investigated by the Richardson County Sheriff's Office with assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
