Grand Island Man Sentenced For Meth
39 year old Michael West, of Grand Island was sentenced in federal court for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. West was sentenced to 112 months’ imprisonment.
On July 26th of last year, West was driving a vehicle in Grand Island when a police officer attempted to stop him. West continued driving for several blocks before stopping. He was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Later that evening, the police received a phone call from a resident who found a bag of suspected drugs on the sidewalk, which they left there for police to retrieve. During a phone call from the jail, West admitted that he threw the drugs out of the window.
The police officer reviewed his cruiser video and also found that, before West stopped his vehicle, a small white item can be seen coming out of the vehicle and hitting the mailbox right where the methamphetamine was found.
