A North Platte woman who declined the opportunity to just walk away is now facing a felony possession charge.
At around 8:30 p.m on Saturday, North Platte Police responded to a disturbance in the 2300 block of East Philip.
According to Officer Rodney Brown, a 37-year-old female told responding officers that 47-year-old Yolanda Conerly and several other people were pounding on her door, demanding money for a vehicle Conerly had sold to the victim.
Officers repeatedly ordered Conerly to leave the area, however, she refused and, as a result, was arrested and charged with 2nd degree criminal trespassing.
Following her arrest, a search of Conerly led to the discovery of a little less than a gram of methamphetamine.
Conerly was transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center where, in addition to trespassing, she was also charged with felony possession of methamphetamine.
