Pamela Edwards of North Platte was sentenced Thursday in federal court for meth possession with intent to distribute.
Edwards, 32, will serve 41 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After her release, she will begin a two-year term of supervised release.
On Jan. 31, 2020, North Platte Police searched Edwards’s car and home and found several baggies of meth ranging in size from 0.23 grams to nine grams. Edwards was responsible for 20 grams of actual methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Jan Sharp said.
In the initial arrest, police also found $527 cash that was suspected to be from drug transactions, small amounts of marijuana, and several pills identified as controlled substances (Zolpidem, Alprazolam and Dilaudid.)
Months later, in October 2021, Edwards was found on foot in North Platte when police went to the area of Second and Willow to check out a vehicle that was reportedly driving erratically, carrying a screaming woman. They found her a few blocks away on foot and took her into custody on the federal charges.
The Nebraska State Patrol and North Platte Police investigated the case, Sharp said.
