Tweeker Town: Police Make Multiple Meth Busts in NP

Posted 2 years ago

By Scott Carlson

The North Platte Police Department had a busy day Thursday, especially when it comes to the battle against methamphetamine.

-At around 9:25 a.m., a patrol officer on duty recognized Timothy Caudillo operating a motor vehicle.  The officer believed that Caudillo had a suspended license and initiated a traffic stop after confirming that his license was indeed suspended.  Caudillo was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving on a suspended license.  The officer then made contact with a passenger in the vehicle, Alicia Suhr, who he soon learned had a warrant for failure to appear.  Suhr was placed under arrest and officers performed a search of the vehicle which revealed drug paraphernalia and a small baggie of suspected methamphetamine.  Officers then performed a search on Caudillo and discovered more paraphernalia.  Upon arrival at the Lincoln County Detention Center, Suhr was again searched and a baggie containing approximately a 1/2 ounce of meth was found in her underwear.  Suhr was then charged with Possession of Methamphetamine with the Intent to Deliver.  Police say more charges may be filed when lab results are returned.

-At around 11:25 a.m., information was gathered and a search warrant was granted for a residence in the 1800 block of West 2nd Street.  Several officers responded to the residence to serve the warrant.  Once inside, officers had contact with Fred Navarette and Keith Phelps.  A search of the residence turned up several items of drug paraphernalia as well as suspected methamphetamine.  Officers determined there was probable cause to arrest both men and charge them with Distribution of Methamphetamine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  They were booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center.

-In the final bust of the day, a patrol officer observed Stacy Navarette operating a motor vehicle.  The officer had probable cause to arrest Navarette for Possession of Methamphetamine from a case generated in May of 2013.  The case involved a traffic stop in which suspected meth was found on Navarette’s person.  The suspected meth was sent to the lab for testing and the results recently came back positive.  The officer initiated a traffic stop and placed Navarette under arrest for the charges from the earlier case.  Upon searching Navarette’s purse, officers found drug paraphernalia, a digital scale and a baggie of suspected meth.  Additionally, officers located a pill bottle which contained 11 different pills, some of which were controlled substances and some which were not.  Navarette was unable to show that she had a prescription for any of the pills.  As a result, Navarette was arrested on the possession charge from the May case, and additional charges of Possession of Controlled Substances (meth and pills) and Distribution of Methamphetamine.  Police say Navarette lives at the residence on 2nd Street where Fred Navarette and Keith Phelps were arrested earlier in the day.  She too was booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center.

    Why am I not surprised by this bust but my question is where are the kids? Tim has 3 little ones and Alishia has 5 so where are they. Has the state stepped in and put them in a safe place? His wife Nicole can’t seem to stay out of jail long enough to take care of these kids

      I believe Alisha’s Mom & her husband have the kids. Sad situation for the families & children involved. There are innocent victims in all these people’s choices. Sad…

    Alicia has 5 kids and not 1 in her custody! Here she is pregnant with her 6th kid and still being a meth head. If you cant or choose not to stay clean for yourself at least do it for the sake of your unborn child thats living in you getting high every time you do! It just sickening! The state should step in and make that girl so she cant have any more babies! These poor kids!
