A North Platte man is facing drug distribution charges after authorities say he provided several teenage girls with LSD, also known as acid.
On June 27, just after Midnight, a Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputy found a teenage girl outside the Sheriff’s Office, 302 North Jeffers Street. The deputy reported that the girl appeared to be under the influence of some unknown substance and was only partially clothed.
As the deputy began to question the girl, Chief Deputy Roland Kramer said she attempted to flee, but was apprehended and detained for questioning.
Deputies questioned the girl who stated that she had purchased LSD earlier in the day and had taken it. Kramer says she then became violent and was transported to Great Plains Health by the North Platte Fire Department.
The investigation continued and deputies found two other female juveniles who had purchased and consumed LSD. They also learned that they had all allegedly purchased it from an individual later identified as 21-year-old Nathan C. Moon.
At around 10:45 a.m., law enforcement executed a search warrant on Moon’s residence, 1010 West 3rd Street.
Moon was placed under arrest and charged with distribution of LSD and three counts of felony child abuse.
Kramer said the investigation is ongoing and more charges are pending.
