  • Authorities arrested a Nebraska City couple and seized two ounces of methamphetamine after conducting an early morning search at the Applewood Trailer Park today.
    Roberto Lopez Biviano, 30, and Cynthia Wichman-Jimenez, 31, were taken into custody for suspicion of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
    The suspected methamphetamine was packaged in a two-ounce bundle. Meth is reportedly sold at $25 for quarter gram, giving two ounces a street value of $5,600.
    Chief Deputy Mike Holland of the Otoe County Sheriff's Office said excellent footwork by sheriff's deputies produced enough evidence to obtain the search warrant.
    "For here, two ounces of meth is a fairly significant amount of drugs, and anytime we can get a significant amount of drugs off the streets in Otoe County we are very pleased," he said.
    Deputies and members of the countywide tactical team including Nebraska City police conducted the raid before sunrise today. Holland said the arrests were made without incident.
    Nebraska City Police Captain Lonnie Neeman said officers also seized about two pickup truck loads of tools, electronics and other items that may be stolen property.
    One of the items, a Moped, had been stolen previously and recovered by police only to be stolen a second time.
