A 31-year-old Minatare man is facing up to 50 years in prison following a meth distribution conviction last week in Scotts Bluff County Court.
Levi Wood was found guilty on a charge of Distribution of Methamphetamine last week, and is facing a prison sentence ranging from 1 to 50 years when he is sentenced on September 27th.
Wood was the target of a WING Drug Task Force investigation last October, where Wood sold 1.3 grams of methamphetamine to a CI during a controlled buy.
Authorities went to serve an arrest warrant in April on Wood at a home on County Road J. During a search of the residence, deputies also found butane hash oil, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. Wood told the deputies that the drugs did not belong to him but he would take the blame.
Current charges in that subsequent case include: Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana (More than 1 ounce)- third offense). He is set to stand trial on those charges in the October jury term.
