Deputies, police and WING investigators arrest several on meth charges


On Tuesday the Cheyenne County Sheriff's office, along with investigators from the Sidney Police Department, the Nebraska State Patrol and the Western Nebraska Intelligence & Narcotics Group arrested several Sidney residents on drug related charges.

Becky Pounder was charged with possession of a controlled substance, as was Martin White. Lynnette Robertson received charges of possession with intent to distribute, as well as possession of money used in the purchase of illegal substances.

Three others in the house at the time investigators entered with a warrant were questioned. It is unclear at press time whether charges had been introduced against any of these. One person present told officers she had stopped by to visit.

Cheyenne County Deputy Fred Wiedeburg, acting under search warrent, announced himself at the front door of the Rose St. residents at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Inside the home they discovered drug paraphernalia, marijuana, LSD and methamphetamines. Shortly after 5 p.m., field tests returned initial positives for meth. According to arrest affidavits, Pounder admitted to using meth pipes with White to smoke the substance.

White allegedly informed investigators on the scene that the marijuana and related items belonged to him, though not the meth.

Law enforcement officers secured the residences in the front and back during the operation.

Affidavits indicate that Robertson's purse was found in a pick up truck parked behind the residence. It included a substance suspected to be meth, along with syringes, a scale and other paraphernalia, along with more than $700 in cash.

She declined an opportunity to be interviewed by an investigator.
