Drug possession case bound over to District Court

YORK – The case against a 27-year-old man from North Platte who was allegedly caught hauling drugs through York County, has been bound over to District Court.

Arraignment proceedings were scheduled this week for Garrett M. Dishman, who is charged with possession of a controlled substance and driving while under the influence of drugs.

He was taken into custody after a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department allegedly saw him swerve nearly into oncoming lanes on South Lincoln Avenue.

After his passenger produced a small amount of marijuana, a probable cause search of the vehicle was conducted and deputies allegedly found pipes with methamphetamine residue, a grinder, a digital scale with methamphetamine residue and plastic baggies commonly used for the distribution of illegal substances.

During the course of the traffic stop, “he displayed signs and symptoms of drug impairment. He admitted to recently using methamphetamine,” according to court documents. It was determined he was under the influence “of a central nervous system stimulant and a central nervous system depressant and could not safely operate a motor vehicle.”
