A hit and run at a North Platte convenience store resulted in multiple charges for a Missouri man and a North Platte woman.

Officers from the North Platte Police Department were dispatched to a reported hit and run at the Casey’s store located at 520 Rodeo Road at around 6:10 p.m. on Tuesday.

The suspect vehicle’s registered owner was located, and told police that he had sold the vehicle to Edward Roney, 32, of Missouri.  However, police say the vehicle was reported stolen because Roney did not formally purchase the vehicle and did not return it to the owner

An officer located the vehicle and Roney in the 1100 block of East 12th at around 7:45 p.m.

Officers conducted a search on Rony’s person and found that he was carrying a knife.

After further investigation, prescription drugs and stolen property were discovered in Roney’s vehicle.

Additionally, a passenger in the vehicle, Cortney Lopez, 24, was found to be in possession of drugs.

Both subjects were arrested and taken to the Lincoln County Detention Center.

Roney was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a concealed weapon, Possession of Stolen Property, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Leaving the Scene of a Non-Injury Accident and Failure to Sign a Citation.

Lopez was charged with with Possession of a controlled Substance.  Lincoln County Sheriff’s records indicate that Lopez has been jailed more than half a dozen times in the last year.
