A 31-year-old North Platte man is facing felony drug charges following his arrest on an active warrant.
At around 1:09 a.m., on March 20, an officer with the North Platte Police Department saw Ryan Walsh park a vehicle in the 2400 block of East 2nd Street.
Knowing Walsh had an active warrant, the officer made contact with him and placed him under arrest.
A search of Walsh’s backpack revealed several prescription pills that were determined to be Alprazolam.
Walsh was transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center, where a more thorough search revealed a plastic baggie which contained a white powdery substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
In the end, Walsh was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of Alprazolam and failure to appear.
He is being held without bond.
