Three months after being busted with a room full of illegal drugs in his apartment, a Jackson man has been convicted and sentenced to probation.

Sheldon Bo Berglund, 23, was arrested in March in what police called the biggest bust in the county in years.

The roundup included $4,100 in cash; 215 syringes loaded with cannabis oil; 196 grams of LSD-infused gummy candy; 223 doses of MDMA, or ‘Molly’; 388 grams of MDMA ecstasy tablets; 398 grams of MDMA; 4.6 grams of liquid LSD; and 46 grams of THC wax, or “shatter.”

Berglund pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a felony. Four other counts were dismissed. He was sentenced to five years probation and outpatient treatment.

Police raided Berglund’s West Jackson apartment March 13 after they obtained a search warrant. Berglund and his wife, Doina Seiciuc, weren’t home at the time but were later arrested.

Seiciuc’s felony charges were later dismissed, police said. The $4,100 that was confiscated during the raid was returned to Berglund, per the court’s orders.

I thought the traffickers were the ones that law enforcement wanted to target. This seems like a pretty light slap on the wrist. A guy like this can do a lot of damage to a young population.
