Marijuana Seized, Suspect Sought

(Lincoln, NE)- A traffic stop on Interstate 80 just east of the South 27th Street Interchange led to the seizure of eight bales of marijuana and a search for the driver of the pickup hauling the illegal drugs.

Around 2:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 09, 2008, a trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol stopped a 2007 Dodge pickup with Iowa plates for speeding on eastbound I-80 near mm 401. The driver of the vehicle was sitting in the trooper’s patrol car, waiting for a K-9 officer to arrive, when he fled on foot

The Lincoln Police Department assisted the Nebraska State Patrol in setting up a perimeter around the area and the Nebraska State Patrol helicopter was called into assist in the search.

Approximately two-hours later the search was called off without locating the suspect. The suspect is a black male identified by his New York driver’s license as 31-year-old Patrick Golding of Bronx, New York.

An indication by a police service dog to the odor of drugs from the truck resulted in the seizure of eight bales of marijuana. The marijuana which was located in the bed of the pickup under the hard top cover had a total weight of 186.7 lbs.

The suspect who was barefoot was last seen wearing khaki shorts, and a camouflage shirt. Anyone who sees the suspect is asked to call local law enforcement. into a marshy area south of Interstate-80. The trooper gave chase and called for assistance.

Lincoln: Wheel-chair bound man tries to settle argument with crossbow

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 24, 2008

Sometimes you can’t make this stuff up folks! Carlos Lupercio of Lincoln, NE got his 15 seconds of fame the last couple of days as news services all over the U.S. picked up the story. It seems Carlos, 49, and wheel-chair bound got into an argument with a 25 yr. old about the breed of the younger man’s dog on the sidewalk.

The owner said the dog was a pit bull, but Lupercio said it was a lab. Apparently, this pissed off Carlos so bad that he went and got his crossbow pistol to settle the argument. After 20 min. (you can imagine, it taking that long by wheel chair…remember the Tim Conway little old man skit?), he returns to settle the score.

The younger man apparently thought it was time to apologize and extended his hand. That’s when Carlos fired from about 2-3 ft., missed him and hit a tree.

Lupercio was arrested and jailed on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony, discharging a weapon within city limits, resisting arrest, failure to comply, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say alcohol may have been a factor in the incident. Do you think?

Deputies arrested two men and a teenage boy in connection to two rural residential break-ins in March.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner asked for helping finding a third man, 46-year-old Robert Rice, who he described as a “person of interest” in the case.

Deputies have arrested Jose Granado, 22, and a 15-year-old relative on suspicion of break-ins March 6 at two homes near Conestoga Lake, Wagner said.

Another man, Kiev Hill, 20, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of possession of a stolen firearm.

In the first break-in, a door was forced open and a 40-inch LCD widescreen TV and alcohol taken, adding up to a $1,050 loss. About that same time, a couple of rifles and jewelry were taken from a nearby home. The loss was estimated at $13,650.

On April 30, deputies searched a duplex at 1619 S. 29th St., which led to the recovery of some of the stolen property, Wagner said. In all, investigators have found two rings, two firearms, the TV and power tools at four addresses, he said…..story & pictures

Bruning Fires Back Again! – Associated Press Bias

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 1, 2008

It seems that all the “bleeding heart liberals” and “open-borders” group were piling on Attorney General, John Bruning yesterday. Assisted in this effort by an AP reporter with a bias story.

So much bias “BS” from AP with “coded” talk. “Critics say“….”Immigration advocates say“….I’d like to know who in the “hell” these unnamed people are? Quotes from “National Immigration Law Center”, “National Council of La Raza”, “Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund”, and “Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission” but nothing from any citizen taxpayers who pay the bills….story
