Two men from California paid bail and got out of the Lincoln County Jail shortly after they were charged with dealing heroin and methamphetamine.

And, two other men were also arrested and charged - one for possession of pot and one for weapons -- in separate traffic stops.

Both of California men got out of jail a few days later, after paying 10 percent of $100,000 bonds.

Alex Chance Taylor, 22, and Deontae Donald Griffin, 22, were stopped at 12:11 p.m. Friday at a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 30 just east of North Platte. Nebraska State Trooper Downing said he spotted evidence of drug use.

A subsequent search turned up 3.7 ounces of heroin and 9.2 ounces of meth.

The men were officially charged Monday in county court with possession with intent to deliver. Bonds were set at $100,000 each.

Before the day was over, Griffin paid bail and was released. Taylor did the same Tuesday, according to sheriff’s records.


Also on April 19, a Nebraska state trooper stopped Hiep Van Troung on Newberry Road east of North Platte for a traffic violation. A strong marijuana odor prompted Trooper Connelly to search the car, where he allegedly found 70 pot plants neatly tucked into the trunk.

Hiep remains in Lincoln County Jail on a $50,000 bond.


On Wednesday, April 24, a Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputy arrested a Montana man for allegedly being a felon with four hunting rifles.

Don E. Stalkfleet, 58, of Roundup, Mont. was stopped at U.S. Highway 83 and Hall School Road. He was driving on a suspended license and using a car that was not registered to him.

Deputies found the guns when they were checking and listing the contents before the vehicle was towed, according to a sheriff's statement.
