(Neb)-Arrest For Mailing Opioid Patches To Jail
A Scottsbluff man has been charged with 3 felonies after allegedly mailing opioid patches to a woman jailed just across the state line in Torrington.
51-year old Douglas Boyce is being held in the Scottsbluff County Jail on $50,000 bond for possession of a controlled substance and two counts of delivery of a controlled substance.
Authorities say in a Feb 2 arrest affidavit that staff at the Goshen County Jail twice intercepted fentanyl patches mailed to the woman.
They also monitored phone calls between Boyce and the woman during which she advised him how to send the patches and discussed where he should hide them.
Police say a search Tuesday of Boyce’s home in Scottsbluff turned up two boxes of the fentanyl patches.
