NEW BERN, N.C. (WITN) - A New Bern man will spend the next 10 years in prison on drug trafficking charges.

Jock Bowden, 48, of New Bern was sentenced to 10 years in prison on a slew of methamphetamine trafficking charges. A mugshot is currently not available.

Court documents said in April of 2020, the Craven County Sheriff’s Office made a controlled purchase of more than 50 grams of methamphetamine from Bowden at his home in New Bern. He was arrested a month later.

During the investigation, deputies say Bowden was found responsible for distributing meth, which was being shipped from California.

Law enforcement also recovered three handguns and a stolen assault rifle and a large amount of ammunition.
