A North Platte woman, Stephanie Huntsman, 22, turned herself into police Sunday to face meth distribution charges.Police spokesman John Deal said an officer picked Huntsman up in the 600 block of East Fifth and took her to the jail.
She faces two counts of meth possession with intent to distribute, as well as a count of possession.
According to court affidavits, Huntsman sold meth twice to confidential informants – on July 29 and again on Aug. 4.
And, on Nov. 21, she was found in a North Platte motel room, along with a used syringe that was sent to the Nebraska Crime Lab, where tests eventually confirmed the syringe contained traces of methamphetamine.
After the lab tests, warrants were issued Feb. 22 for Huntsman’s arrest on all three charges, according to court records.
Huntsman is held on jail bonds totalling more than $200,000.
Also over the weekend, at 10:59 p.m. on March 4, an officer went to a house in the 2400 block of W. Ninth in response to a complaint of a domestic disturbance at a different address.
A 27-year-old woman said she was at her home in the 3100 block of South Oak when an argument took place with husband Richard Perkins, 40. Police were told that Richard hit the woman on the side of her face with his hand and knocked her to the floor. She had a visible injury on her face, consistent with her story, as well as a witness.
Police found Perkins at home on Oak and charged him with assault. The charge was enhanced to a felony because Perkins has a prior conviction for domestic assault. In September, he was charged with assault and strangulation, according to Lincoln County sheriff’s records.
Perkins' bond is set at $25,000.
Nicholas Macmillan, 36, was arrested Friday after a test at the Nebraska Crime Lab confirmed meth on a pipe that police found in his room on Dec. 28.
Police found the pipe when they were looking for Bradley Tanner, who was wanted for theft.
Tanner ran into Macmillan’s house in the 1100 block of E. Eighth and police searched the house. They found a stolen Xbox and cell phone, sufficient evidence to arrest Tanner, as well as the pipe in Macmillan’s room, police spokesman John Deal said.
Macmillan’s bond is set at $15,000.
