Convicted felon accused of meth possession in York County pleads no contest to lesser charge

YORK – Tyler Dishman, 31, of Omaha, who was charged with possession of methamphetamine, after a traffic stop in York County, has pleaded no contest to a lesser charge.

The case began when a York County Sheriff’s deputy was on regular patrol in York, on S. Lincoln Ave. The deputy says in the affidavit filed with the court he saw a car swerve into the center turning lanes almost into oncoming traffic at South 35th Street. The vehicle swerved into the turning lane designated for southbound traffic intending to turn east – and the driver returned to the road and continued northbound. The deputy followed and the vehicle then completed a U-turn at the next intersection and went south.

A traffic stop was initiated.

The driver was identified as Garrett Dishman. Tyler Dishman was the passenger.

Due to suspicious behavior, a search of the vehicle was conducted. During that search, deputies found two glass smoking pipes containing methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia, a grinder, a digital scale with methamphetamine residue and baggies commonly used for sale and distribution of controlled substances.

It was noted that Tyler Dishman “is a convicted felon in Nebraska, his criminal history indicates charges and convictions for crimes relating to the possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, no drug tax stamp, possession with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, obstructing police and a slew of traffic violations.”

He was initially charged with a Class 4 felony. This past week, in York County District Court, the charge was amended to a Class 1 misdemeanor and he pleaded no contest.

Sentencing has been set for June 18.
