A North Platte man is facing charges after Police found him in possession of prescription drugs.

According to a North Platte Police Department news release, an officer observed a blue Chevy pickup pull into the parking lot at Kwik Stop, 1402 Rodeo Road.  After running the plate on the vehicle, the Officer received information that the plate was registered to a Ford and became suspicious that it may be fictitious.

As the Officer pulled into the parking lot to investigate further, the vehicle’s driver, Gregory Skinner, exited the vehicle and ran.

Additional Officers responded to the area and located Skinner who again fled on foot.  Eventually, he was found hiding along a fence line near 10th Street and Washington Street, and was taken into custody without incident.

Officers learned Skinner has a suspended license.  After being transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center, a search of Skinner’s wallet yielded a pill identified as Aderall, a drug commonly used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder and other conditions.

Skinner was booked on charges of Possession of Adderall (felony), Resisting Arrest (felony) and Driving Under Suspension (misdemeanor).

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office does not list a bond amount.

  • seriously!

    Well because people don’t like to pay for their vehicles to be registered and routinely check to make sure vehicles are actually registered. Again if you don’t want to get into trouble don’t break the laws. Pretty simple concept!

    They don’t need a reason, they just do what ever they want. I was doing yardwork the other day and was approached by two of North Plattes finest and was ordered to see my id after calling in to see if that there were any warrants they left without any explanation as to why I was stopped I guess there is a new law in town allowing to frisk and search

    I knew him growing up. Went to Jefferson, Adams and NPHS with him. He was a good person. Please keep your judging off this page. North Platte is notorious for judging too soon!
