Narcotics investigators arrested a Lincoln woman at a local hotel Wednesday night after they found more than a pound of methamphetamine while carrying out a sting operation, according to police.
The investigators, who work on the Lincoln-Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force, met with 30-year-old Dacia Leytham at 10 p.m. Wednesday in the hotel parking lot, near 27th and Superior streets, under the guise of a drug deal, Lincoln Police Sgt. Chris Vollmer said.
Police found 509 grams — or 1.2 pounds — of suspected methamphetamine in the woman's vehicle, Vollmer said. Investigators also located less than 6 grams of marijuana, a pair of ecstasy pills and $388 in cash, Vollmer said.
Investigators arrested Leytham on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and possession of money while violating a drug law.
