South Bend man sentenced to 28 years on drug charges

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A South Bend man was sentenced to 28 years in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Bradley Burns, 33, was sentenced to 28 years in prison and will serve 5 years supervised release.

Between October 2019 and February 2020, Burns conspired to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine, according to the US Attorney's Office.

Another person was making cross-country drug trafficking trips between California and Indiana for Burns, court records said.

In February 2020, that person was stopped in Oklahoma with over 100 pounds of meth and a kilo of heroin.

Burns was expecting the meth to be delivered to his home when a search warrant was executed at his home.

Law enforcement located multiple firearms, fentanyl, a money counter and drug ledger, reports said.
