Man sentenced to three years in state prison after largest meth bust in City

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.

Police said that during the course of the initial investigation in February, numerous ‘One-Pot’ methamphetamine cooking containers were located inside the Prospect Street residence, along with chemicals, accelerants and byproducts. The Norwich Police requested the assistance of the New York State Police – CCSERT (Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team) and the Norwich Fire Department at the scene. All of the involved agencies remained on the scene for several hours while the chemicals, containers and evidence were collected.
