Geneva man sentenced for possessing methamphetamine

YORK – Nathan Ulmer, 29, of Geneva, has been sentenced to jail in a case involving the possession of methamphetamine in York County.

Earlier, he appeared in York County District Court where he pleaded no contest to attempted possession of methamphetamine, a Class 1 misdemeanor, which is a lesser charge than the initial Class 4 felony he was earlier charged with. This was part of a plea agreement.

Ulmer was first charged when an officer with the York Police Department saw a vehicle bearing fictitious license plates. A traffic stop was initiated. Ulmer was a passenger in the vehicle.

The officer, according to court documents, could smell the odor of marijuana. The officer told the driver and Ulmer he would be searching the vehicle. At that point, the officer said Ulmer quickly opened his vehicle door and bent towards the ground. After they were both out of the vehicle, the officer went to the passenger area when Ulmer had opened the door and found a plastic bag containing a white crystal-like substance. That substance tested positive as methamphetamine, weighing 3.99 grams.

This week, in York County District Court, he was sentenced to six months in jail with credit for 15 days already served.
