A North Platte woman is in jail on felony drug charges after lab tests confirmed the presence of methamphetamine in a glass pipe.
On September 4, 2013, an officer with the North Platte Platte Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a Chevy pickup that had no license plates displayed.
The officer learned that the driver, 26-year-old Latosha Ryan, was operating the vehicle under a suspended license and had two active Lincoln County warrants.
According to Officer Rodney Brown, a subsequent search of Ryan’s person revealed a glass pipe with white powder residue.
Later test results from the Nebraska State Patrol Crime Lab indicated the presence of meth.
On March 4, 2014, an officer contacted Ryan during another traffic stop and placed her under arrest for possession of methamphetamine.
Ryan was transported and jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
