Deputies: tracks through field lead to illegal drugs

NEBRASKA CITY – An arrest warrant has been issued in Otoe County for a Lincoln man accused of fleeing law enforcement through a field while evidence was being discarded.

Investigators say a Nebraska state trooper interrupted 28-year-old Dustin Kann’s trip from Kansas City to Lincoln with an attempted traffic stop in May. A warrant affidavit says the trooper observed a Buick fleeing at 105 mph, swerving toward pedestrians and oncoming traffic.

The pursuit was discontinued, but Otoe County sheriff’s deputies say they followed tracks into a field where pharmaceutical pills, razor blades, plastic bags, scale, mirror and THC products were found. The affidavit says deputies found 24 grams of cocaine and 38 grams of meth.

A passenger in the Buick, 21-year-old Makenna O’Neal of Lincoln, is charged with tampering with evidence. She is scheduled for preliminary hearing on July 14.
