A Concord man was sentenced Thursday to more than six years in federal prison for possessing several illegal drugs with the intent to sell.

Bernard Lindsay, 41, was found guilty this past spring following a two-day jury trial in U.S. District Court in Concord.

Concord police arrested Lindsay in April 2018 after a probation/parole home visit on Warren Street, where they found a plastic case containing more than 16 grams of methamphetamine, 23 grams of fentanyl and 34 grams of cocaine, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. They also seized a large amount of money, drug paraphernalia and other evidence of drug distribution, officials said.

As part of their investigation, police obtained search warrants for the defendant’s home, car and cellphones.

“This case demonstrates an ongoing collaborative team effort by law enforcement partners at the local, state, and federal level to remove a dangerous drug dealer from our community,” Concord police Lt. Sean Ford said in a statement. “Mr. Lindsey’s arrest and prosecution is a big step forward in making our communities safer and holding those that deal dangerous drugs accountable.”
