NORWICH – One of the men behind what authorities called the largest meth bust in the City of Norwich will be spending the next three years behind bars after he was sentenced in Chenango County Court Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Christopher A. Bonno, 27, of Norwich, entered a plea of guilty to the top count of his indictment, unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree, a class D felony, in exchange for a determinate three year sentence of incarceration in the New York State Department of Corrections, along with two years of post-release supervision. He was sentenced as a predicate felon, having been convicted of criminal mischief in the second degree in the Chenango County Court back on July 16, 2010.
Bonno was the third individual arrested in connection with a meth bust at a residence on Prospect St., across from an elementary school, in the City of Norwich on Feb. 10. It was reported that Bonno initially fled the scene, but was later apprehended.
