Authorities arrested three people after executing several search warrants in Gage County on Tuesday.

The Gage County Sheriff’s Office worked with the Beatrice Police Department and Nebraska State Patrol to serve three warrants at three residences in Blue Springs and Wymore. The warrants were part of an investigation into meth distribution in Gage County.

At one residence, authorities arrested 49-year-old Leslie Shepardson and 50-year-old Dennis Pella for drug charges.

Authorities reportedly found the following items inside the home:

  • (7) individual plastic zip-lock baggies, each containing a small amount of suspected methamphetamine
  • (1) digital scale
  • Approximately 200 empty, unused plastic zip-lock baggies
  • $140 in U.S. currency
  • A suspected drug ledger documenting cash transactions
  • Six meth pipes
  • (3) snort straws
  • Marijuana pipes

At a second residence, investigators arrested 52-year-old David Shepardson for drug possession after reportedly finding a baggie containing a half-gram of suspected methamphetamine.

Finally, authorities cited a 30-year-old for possession of marijuana after reportedly finding a small amount of the drug as well as paraphernalia in the home she was in. Children were also located in the home, and DHHS is coordinating services for them, authorities said.
