Investigators say more than 130 marijuana plants have been found at the home of a woman who worked as a litigation assistant in the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.
38-year-old Kimberly Meidell was arrested Wednesday at the home she shares with 38-year-old Eric Trost, who also was arrested.
An arrest warrant affidavit says that in addition to the marijuana plants, more than a pound of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia were found in the home.
Meidell had worked in the Attorney General’s Office for more than nine years. Deputy Attorney General David Cookson said Thursday that Meidell’s “employment has been terminated.”
A Lancaster County jailer said Meidell and Trost remained in custody on Friday. Online court records don’t list the names of their attorneys.
