A Beatrice man could face additional drug charges after being arrested on two warrants Thursday evening.
Just after 7 p.m. on Thursday a Beatrice police officer patrolling in the 1300 block of Scott Street saw three individuals walking west.
The officer recognized 20-year-old Austin J. Meyn of Beatrice from previous contacts as one of them and knew he had active Gage County warrants. Meyn was placed under arrest and allegedly told the officer he had a scale and little bit of marijuana on him.
According to Gage County Court documents, he also provided the officer with a false name and date of birth. Police searched him and found a scale, in addition to an orange pharmaceutical pill bottle with loose and nugget forms of a green leafy substance.
He eventually told officers his correct name and was placed under arrest for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and false reporting.
Court documents state Meyn had warrants in two cases. In the first, he's charged with possession of Vyvanse with intent to distribute, possession of Alprazolam, possession of Lorazepan, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In the second case with a warrant, he's charged with theft by receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.
Bond set at $5,000 with a 10 percent deposit. Meyn's next hearing is set for April 5.
