The Nebraska State Patrol rounded up the 13th suspect Thursday in a regional drug bust that began Monday. Jamie Koubek, 22, of North Platte was arrested by the Nebraska State Patrol. The arrest comes on the heels of a six-month undercover investigation and the arrest of a dozen people in four counties, including eight people from North Platte.
Investigators said Koubek distributed methamphetamine on at least two separate occasions. She was arrested on an outstanding warrant during a routine traffic stop in North Platte, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
Koebek was arraigned Friday in Lincoln County Court by Judge Kent Turnbull.
According to prosecutor Rebecca Harling, Koubek sold meth to a confidential police informant on May 18 and June 14.
Turnbull set Koubek’s bond at 10 percent of $100,000. He said that is the minimum amount he sets in cases involving meth distribution.
Those arrested in the Cooperative Enforcement drug bust were charged with possession and/or selling controlled substances to undercover investigators or agents. The drugs included marijuana, pharmaceuticals and methamphetamines.
