Man to be Sentenced on Heroin Conviction in Butler County Next Month

DAVID CITY, Neb. – A Lincoln man will be back in David City next month for his sentencing hearing after being convicted of possessing heroin last month.

30-year-old Jay Weinand was convicted of heroin possession in Butler County District court after reaching a plea deal that dropped other drug charges.

According to court records, a Butler County Sheriff deputy said Weinand appeared fidgety, nervous and shaking uncontrollably during a stop on Highway 92.

The deputy said that Weinand’s “heart was beating through his shirt” during the entirety of the stop.

The records say Weinand was asked if his car could be searched, when Weinand denied consent, the deputy called police dog ‘Sting’ over and the dog indicated drugs were in the car.

Deputies found three needles and two spoons inside the vehicle and on the spoons, deputies found a brown sticky substance, that tested positive for heroin. Deputies say they also found three pills, which were identified as two illegal prescription medications.

Prosecutors dismissed the two drug charges from the pills after Weinand pled guilty to possession of heroin.

Weinand will be sentenced on October 3rd in David City.
