FAYETTEVILLE – A Springdale man was sentenced Wednesday to 235 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release on one count of Distribution of Methamphetamine. The Honorable Judge Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.

According to court documents, in January 2023, detectives with the 4th Judicial District Drug Task Force received information from a confidential source about ongoing methamphetamine distribution occurring in Northwest Arkansas. During the investigation, law enforcement conducted multiple controlled purchases of methamphetamine from Thomas Colt Boger, age 40. Subsequently, investigators learned that there was an increase in suspected drug activity occurring at Boger’s residence in Springdale. Law enforcement later successfully seized a backpack from the residence that contained two large bundles of methamphetamine.

The purchased and seized methamphetamine was submitted to the Homeland Security Investigations Crime Laboratory for testing where it was tested and determined to be methamphetamine. Between the controlled purchases and the seized backpack, Boger was held accountable for over 2.25 kilograms of actual methamphetamine.

U.S. Attorney David Clay Fowlkes of the Western District of Arkansas made the announcement.

The 4th Judicial District Drug Task Force investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Eaton prosecuted the case.
