2 arrested in Beatrice park Saturday


Two people were arrested Saturday after police spotted a vehicle in a Beatrice park after hours.

At around 2:30 a.m. a Beatrice police officer patrolling near Sixth Street and Grable Avenue observed a white sedan in Chautauqua Park. The park is closed from midnight to 6 a.m. and the officer saw a female appear to hide something as he approached the vehicle.

Arrest documents state that when the office approached the vehicle there was a brass knuckle on the armrest of the vehicle. The driver was identified as 27-year-old Alyssa Lange and the passenger as33-year-old Chance Corliss, who police learned was a convicted felon. Corliss was placed under arrest for possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person and Lange was asked if there were any more weapons in the vehicle.

Arrest documents state she told police she was sitting on another pair of brass knuckles and was placed under arrest.

While conducting an inventory of the vehicle, a methamphetamine pipe was found in a bag that field tested positive for methamphetamine. A card with Lange’s name was also found in the bag. A scale with a white substance, small clear baggies and another pipe were also found in the bag, and $212 was found in the center console.

While being booked at the jail, a yellow tablet was found in her purse that she stated was Clonazepam, a controlled substance she didn’t have a prescription for.

Lange was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, two counts possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a playground, possession of drug money, possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.
