YORK – A 37-year-old York man has pleaded guilty to possession of 10-27 grams of methamphetamine.
Nicholas Turner was initially charged with delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school/educational facility frequented by children. That was amended to the new charge, which is a high level felony.
A charge of possession of a controlled substance was dismissed.
He entered his plea in York County District Court this past week.
According to the affidavit in support of arrest filed by an undercover investigator with the Rural Apprehension Program, a confidential informant reported that a transaction had been set up with Turner. That drug transaction was to take place in the 400 Block of Burlington Avenue, investigators said, which is close to York Public Schools’ enrichment center and the city’s community center.
Investigators say they equipped the informant with a recording device and a listening device, as well as cash in order to purchase methamphetamine. They say they watched and recorded the informant meet with Turner and purchase the methamphetamine, with the substance being positively identified later at the Nebraska State Patrol laboratory.
Sentencing has been scheduled for Aug. 12.
