(Neb)-Search Warrant Raid Leads To Arrest Of Chadron Woman In Hot Springs Traffic Stop
CHADRON - A Chadron woman is in custody in South Dakota as the result of a drug investigation by the Chadron Police Department.
26-year-old Brittany Carder was arrested by the Hot Springs Police Department after a traffic stop requested by Chadron police revealed methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Carder is being held without bond and is facing possible charges in both states.
Chadron police officer Patrick Young says his department received information last week on possible use of meth at the East 2nd Street shared by Carder and her 3 children.
Officer Young investigated the report, which led to a search warrant at the home on Tuesday that included officers using a battering ram on the front door. Neither Carder or any of her children was home at the time.
Young says officers seized plastic bags with suspected methamphetamine residue inside as well as items related to the use of meth...including glass pipes and hypodermic syringes.
Officers also learned that Carder and her children might be in the Black Hills, so South Dakota authorities were contacted and asked to be on the lookout for Carder. Young says the request led Carder's stop and arrest about 5:00 that same afternoon in Hot Springs.
Carder's children were with her when she taken into custody. South Dakota Child Protective Services got in touch with their Nebraska counterparts who in turn were able to contact relatives of the children who went to Hot Springs and took the children home with them.
Report from the initial investigation, the search warrant raid, and the South Dakota arrest are being sent to Dawes County Attorney Vance Haug for review of potential charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and child abuse - the last for children being in a location where drugs were present.
The Chadron Police Department was assisted by the WING Drug Task Force, Hot Springs Police, and the Nebraska and South Dakota Departments of Health and Human Services.
