KANKAKEE MAN TO SERVE FIVE YEARS IN PRISON FOR MARIJUANA GROWING OPERATION, FILING FALSE TAX RETURNS AND MAKING FALSE STATEMENT TO BANK

U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough sentenced 38-year-old David Aaron Neblock to a five-year prison term. Following his release from prison, Neblock was ordered to remain on federal supervised release for four years.

Neblock has been in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service since he pled guilty on Jan. 29, 2015, to possession with intent to distribute more than 100 marijuana plants, three counts of filing false income tax returns for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 tax years, and making false statements to a financial institution.

According to court documents, in July 2012, members of the Kankakee Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group (KAMEG) seized more than 750 hydroponic marijuana plants from a warehouse in Bradley, Ill., used by Neblock to grow marijuana.

Neblock was also ordered to pay $52,128 of additional tax due and owing to the Internal Revenue Service that resulted from his omission of other income earned, including income from the sale of narcotics, for tax years 2010, 2011, and 2012,

Further, Neblock agreed to forfeit property, his former residence on River Road in Kankakee.
