NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (North Platte Post) – A North Platte news reporter has been arrested on drug charges.
According to the North Platte Police Department, 19-year old Dillon Daigger, reporter for the North Platte Bulletin, allegedly gave illegal drugs to a female juvenile from Frontier County. Investigators contacted Daigger at his residence and could smell marijuana coming from inside his home. After obtaining a warrant and the subsequent search, Daigger was arrested and charged for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class IV felony), Possession of Legend Drugs, (pharmaceutical drugs requiring a prescription- Class III misdeameanor), Possession of Marijuana Less than an Ounce and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (both infractions.)
Daigger remains in the Lincoln County Jail. No bond is listed. The investigation continues.

 

The following is a statement from North Platte Bulletin publisher George Lauby:

 

Dillon has been a good employee. He’s worked well every work day for nearly a year. He’s been conscientious, fair and thorough in the way he’s approached his work and done his job.

      He is actually 19. I’ve known him for a while now. Must’ve been a typo.

      Looks like you need something better to do with your life than go around making fun of people all the damn time.

        “All the damn time?” Excuse me but where’s your evidence of me “making fun of people all the damn time?” Until you can provide such evidence, STFU.

    The jail listing had his age wrong. We verified with the NP Police Department. He was born in August 1992. He is actually 19…

    I just looked at the Bulletin’s website and they don’t have the story online. I wonder if they will? I’d love to hear their take on this.

    I’ve known Dillon for a long time and is a good friend of mine. I just hope he learns his lesson from experimenting with this crap.

    I always thought it was interesting he knew the scoop of every drug deal in town, more than that of being a court reporter, I thought he went to treatment , got the cure” and just loved balming is friends and associates. really nothing had changed, Karma got him, what goes around always comes around.

    Love how everyone seems to know exactly who everyone is and what everyone is doing in this town. Its pretty amazing. Not for the news dude and his dope, but overall, no one keeps score in a bigger town like they do in this one. Grudges, rumors, and gossip whenever something happens. It is like a wild fire. Spreads throughout the entire place. Never ceases to amaze me.
