BEATRICE – Beatrice Police have arrested two people in a traffic stop that resulted in the discovery of fentanyl, and other drugs.
Appearance bonds have been set at $10,000 each for Trisha Crosby and Sean Lyons. Police say Crosby was the driver of a vehicle stopped by police, because of an unreadable license plate. An officer recognized Lyons, as a passenger in the vehicle, who had an active warrant for his arrest. Crosby was the driver.
During a search of the vehicle, police seized what they said was liquid methadone contained in prescription bottles, that had been prescribed to another person not in the vehicle. Also recovered was a small vial of a gray powder substance, police said field tested as Fentanyl. Officers also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia, during the search.
During booking at the Gage County Jail, authorities allegedly recovered six Alprazolam pills that had been taped by a band-aid, to Crosby’s body. Police also seized $80 cash in separate bundles, that authorities suspect was drug money.
Crosby was booked on suspicion of drug possession and possession with intent to distribute methadone and marijuana, possession of drug money and drug paraphernalia. Lyons was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to distribute methadone and methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
During the traffic stop, police recovered evidence from phone records that the pair were allegedly negotiating a price for the liquid methadone.
Both Crosby and Lyons face scheduled hearings in Gage County Court, November 20th.
