A judge has sentenced a 34-year-old Lincoln man to 15 to 25 years in prison on drug and gun charges.

On Dec. 4, 2013, investigators with the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force stopped Sergey Demyanovskiy on a traffic violation and found 1 1/2 ounces of meth, nearly 2 ounces of marijuana and a stolen, loaded gun in his car, according to court records.

Police say Demyanovskiy told them he sold an ounce of meth earlier that day for $1,200.

He later pleaded no contest to possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Lancaster County District Judge Susan Strong sentenced him Oct. 30.

In May, while out on bond, University of Nebraska-Lincoln police allegedly caught Demyanovskiy breaking into cars parked at a greenhouse at 3866 Merrill Ave. on East Campus.

He is awaiting trial on charges of felony theft and possession of burglar's tools.
