BEATRICE – A woman sentenced to probation in Gage County District Court last week, is back in custody.
Beatrice Police arrested 27-year-old Taylor Closs-Jensen on Monday, on suspicion of driving on a suspended license and possession of the drug, Alprazolam.
A patrolling Beatrice Police officer identified Closs-Jensen as the driver of a vehicle near 19th and Scott, and records showed her license had previously been suspended. She had two prior D-U-S convictions from last March.
In addition to her arrest, police arrested a passenger, James White Jr., on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine and Alprazolam and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police located pills in a sunglass compartment of the vehicle and found suspected methamphetamine and a glass drug pipe.
Bond for Closs-Jensen is set at $10,000 in Gage County Court, while White’s bond is set at $5,000. Both face further hearing, August 28th.
Last Thursday, Closs-Jensen had been sentenced to a two-year probation term in two criminal cases.
