(The following is from a press release issued by the Chadron Police Department on Monday afternoon)
(CHADRON)-Around 4:00 a.m. on Monday, March 10th, officers from the Chadron Police Department were conducting business building checks in the downtown area and found an open door at the business Game Changer, located at 173 Main Street.
Officers entered the business through the open door to make sure it had not been burglarized or broken into. While inside the business looking for unauthorized subjects, the officers found what they suspected to be marijuana lying out in open view of the officers. The officers cleared the business and subsequently served four search warrants on the business premise and a vehicle over the course of about 10 hours.
Officers found approximately seven ounces of suspected marijuana, suspected psilocybin mushrooms, a brownish colored wax suspected of containing a high concentration of THC, scales (three electronic scales other postage scale), packaging materials (plastic baggies/zip lock baggies, rolling papers, marijuana grinders), a hydrocodone prescription pill, two cell phones, approximately $1,000 in cash, a loaded 38-caliber pistol, suspected marijuana pipes, and other containers used to hold suspected marijuana.
