Man caught hauling drugs while high, in York County, has sentencing rescheduled

YORK – Garrett M. Dishman, 27, of North Platte, has changed his pleas in a case where he was caught hauling drugs through York County, while driving high on drugs as well.

Dishman changed his plea during a status hearing this past week in York County District Court.

He was taken into custody after a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department 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 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.”

An earlier charge of possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony, was amended to attempt of a Class 4 felony, which is a misdemeanor. He pleaded no contest.

Regarding the charge of driving under the influence of drugs, Dishman pleaded no contest.

He will be sentenced on May 21.
