Multi-agency effort ends in 12 arrests

People in Nebraska who are arrested and charged with crimes can often feel scared and unsure of who they can trust. It is important for them to remember that they do have rights and these rights must be respected and protected at every step of the way in a criminal investigation and arrest. These rights include the protection against unlawful search and seizure and well as the right to a fair defense process.

According to a report from The Independent, multiple agencies contributed to an effort that led to the arrest of 12 people for a variety of drug crimes. The work was part of what is known as the Central Nebraska Drug and Safe Streets Task Force. A sting was coordinated and executed on a Thursday morning. No details about what led to the sting, such as what evidence was found to substantiate it, were given.

The report indicated that officers retrieved some cocaine, cash and more than two pounds of methamphetamine during the event. One defendant was charged with distribution of cocaine. Others were charged with distribution of methamphetamine and conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute the drug was also charged to some of the defendants.

Four different police departments from Hastings, Aurora, Grand Island and Kearney were involved in the arrests as were Merrick, Buffalo and Adams County Sheriff's Offices. The Nebraska State Patrol, Hall County and U.S. Attorney's Offices, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Homeland Security Investigations were also part of the activity.
