Several people were arrested for drug dealing over the weekend in Norfolk.
NORFOLK, Neb. – Several people were arrested for drug trafficking this weekend in Norfolk.
Just before 6.30pm on Saturday, a Norfolk Police officer reported observing a vehicle driven by Bradley R. Bussey, 58, of Norfolk.
The officer knew Bussey and knew his driver’s license was suspended, NPD officials said. A traffic stop was made and Bussey was arrested for driving under suspension.
During a search of the vehicle, officers reportedly found two syringes. One of the syringes was loaded, Norfolk Police Captain Chad Reiman said. The contents of the syringe were field tested positive for methamphetamine.
Bussey was incarcerated in Norfolk City Jail on multiple counts and was later transported to Madison County Jail.
About two and a half hours later, a Norfolk police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of the 1300 block of Pasewalk Ave.
As the officer approached the vehicle, he reportedly observed a plastic bag containing a white powdery substance inside the vehicle.
The officer also reported observing open containers of alcohol. The driver of the vehicle, Arturo Hernandez, 24, of Norfolk, showed signs of impaired driving and also provided a breath sample that exceeded the legal limit, NPD said.
During the investigation, the white powdery substance was field tested and tested positive for cocaine, Reiman said. Hernandez also allegedly had pills on him that were determined to be a controlled substance.
Hernandez was arrested for DUI and two counts of possession of a controlled substance. The two passengers in the vehicle, Ronald Garcia, 21, and Oscar Hernandez, 23, both of Norfolk, were arrested for possession of a controlled substance and cited for possession of marijuana.
All three subjects were held in Norfolk City Jail and later transported to Madison County Jail.
