A Lincoln man was sentenced to a year in prison after drugs were found during a traffic stop in Gage County.

Rodney L. Foss, 39, was arrested for drug possession last February after being pulled over for speeding.

A Gage County sheriff's deputy spotted a vehicle speeding southbound on Highway 77 near Cedar Road. The vehicle was clocked at 72 mph and a traffic stop was conducted on the black Pontiac G6.

The deputy learned during a records check that Foss had an active warrant out of Lancaster County. He was arrested on the warrant, and an inventory was taken of the vehicle.

During the search, authorities found a small cylinder container with a white, crystal-like substance in the driver's side door.

A purple container with two glass pipes that had residue was found in a backpack on the front passenger's seat. All three items field tested positive for methamphetamine.

He was sentenced to one year in prison on Wednesday in Gage County District Court, with another year of post release supervision following that.

It was ordered that the sentence run concurrently with a Lancaster County case in which he was sentenced to one year prison starting on Jan. 17 for possession of a controlled substance.
