California Man Sentenced to 96 Months for Methamphetamine Possession

 Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that John Earl Beridon, 47, of Canyon Country, California, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher for Possessing with Intent to Distribute 50 grams or more of pure methamphetamine.  Beridon received a sentence of 96 months’ imprisonment with a five-year term of supervised release to follow.  There is no parole in the federal system. 

On July 9, 2020, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration were at the Federal Express facility in Ralston, Nebraska, when they seized a package with 392 grams of pure methamphetamine.  The package was then delivered to the listed address where it was monitored until Beridon arrived and retrieved the package and was arrested.  Further investigation established that Beridon was near the Federal Express store in California where the package was shipped from and flew out to Nebraska the day before the package was to arrive. 

This case was investigated by the DEA and Nebraska State Patrol.
