(Neb)-Mid-Plains CC Student Arrested For Drugs
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. - Troopers and Investigators with the State Patrol arrested a Mid Plains Community College student Thursday afternoon in North Platte after finding multiple controlled substances in a vehicle and dorm room.
At the request of the college, troopers conducted a K9 sniff of a campus parking lot that led to the full search of a vehicle and the discovery of drug paraphernalia and 2 grams of marijuana.
Mid Plains staff then searched the dorm of the car's owner, 19-year old Trey Bahler of Lamar, and found marijuana edibles and more drug paraphernalia.
A search warrant was then obtained and a more in-depth search by investigators found 10 grams of marijuana, 11 doses of suspected pot edibles, about a pint of suspected hash butter, a hit of suspected LSD, and more than $5,000 cash believed to be connected to the sale of drugs.
At that point Bahler was arrested and taken to the Lincoln County Jail on multiple charges that include possession of hashish with intent to deliver. More charges could be added depending the result of pending lab testing.
State Troopers made a big drug haul Wednesday in a flatbed pickup was stopped for following too closely on Interstate 80 in Lincoln. After a drug dog detected something from the bed, a search found a hidden large compartment.
The driver, 35-year old Courtney Passiglia of Columbia, Mo, and 39-year old passenger James Conry of Brookfield, Ill, were both arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and lodged in the Lancaster County Jail.
