(North Platte) (North Platte PD) On Sunday officers from the North Platte Police Department responded to Love’s Travel Stop at I-80 and S. Newberry Road on the report of a suspicious person. The male subject, identified as Illinois resident, Richard Sandberg was behaving strange. Sandberg was hallucinating and acting paranoid, which led responding officers to believe he was under the influence of illicit drugs. After the investigation was complete Sandberg was found to be in possession of a trace amount of methamphetamine. He was placed under arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Meth), 28-416(3) (III FEL) and later incarcerated at the Lincoln County Jail.
An unrelated arrest of Nicholle Caudillo was conducted by the CODE Task Force. More details as they become available.
