KEARNEY, Neb. — A Kearney woman has admitted to dealing methamphetamine in Kearney to support her own habit.
Veronica Ring, 32, pleaded guilty last week in U.S. District Court in Omaha to distribution of meth.
Sentencing is scheduled for June. She faces five to 40 years in prison, a $5 million fine and four years of supervised release after her release from prison.
Ring remains in federal custody.
On Nov. 9, Kearney Police Department officers served a search warrant on the mobile home Ring shared with Sherri Burrows, 38. Officers found several safes containing baggies of meth in Ring's bedroom.
Police also found digital scales, new packaging material, meth pipes and a ledger that contained names and prices in suspected drug transactions. Pills of suspected meth and two lockboxes containing $4,200 also were seized.
A total of 10.51 ounces of suspected meth was found in Ring's bedroom. She was arrested on a federal warrant in January.
Burrows is charged in Buffalo County District Court with felony possession of meth, felony conspiracy to distribute meth, felony distribution of marijuana and two counts of felony child abuse. She is being held at the Buffalo County Jail on $75,000 bail.
She is scheduled to appear in court later this month.
