Investigators reported finding marijuana, mushrooms, LSD, oxycodone pills, alprazolam pills, syringes, cash, and firearms at one Lincoln residence
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Just before 1 p.m. on May 21, investigators with the Lincoln-Lancaster Narcotics Task Force reported contacting three men at a residence on north 3rd street.
Investigators say they were looking into the information they’d received that someone was selling narcotics out of his home.
Investigators reported that 22-year-old Gustav Rockey and 25-year-old Christopher Gray were among the men contacted that claimed they lived at the address. The third man was a 20-year-old male who was only visiting the residence.
However, the officers reported that the visiting man had a warrant out for his arrest and he was taken into custody. The investigators also reported finding a small amount of THC wax in his wallet and he was arrested.
The task force also reported that Rockey and the other man were each found with a glass pipe and bags of marijuana on them that they turned over to the investigators.
Next, investigators say they allowed Rockey and the other man to leave while they applied for a search warrant.
When the search warrant was served, investigators reported finding the following, valued at $122,00:
- 4.15 pounds of marijuana (estimated street value $7,800)
- 2.7 pounds of psilocybin mushrooms (estimated street value $17,000)
- 855 hits of LSD (estimated street value $9,000)
- 3,604 Oxycodone pills (estimated street value $72,000)
- 1,281 Alprazolam pills (estimated street value of $16,000)
- 209 THC syringes
- almost $2,300 in cash
- .38 Special Revolver
- 9mm handgun
- .22 caliber rifle
On May 24, around 9 a.m., investigators reported finding Rockey near 1st and Cornhusker and then taking him into custody.
Two days later, Gray was also taken into custody.
Both Gray and Rockey were arrested for two counts of Possession with Intent to Deliver Controlled Substance (Schedule 1, 2, or 3), Possession with Intent to Deliver Controlled Substance (Schedule 4 or 5), Possession of Money While Violating a Drug Law, and Possession of a Firearm with a Drug Law Violation.
Gray also faces the additional charge of Possession of a Firearm with the Drug Law Violation.
This investigation is ongoing as investigators continue to search for other individuals who live in the residence.
