DRUG ARRESTPanhandle authorities have arrested a fifth person in a sting involving the trafficking of LSD and MDMA; both mood-altering dangerous drugs.

A 17 year-old youth was arrested by Sidney law enforcement authorities late Wednesday night on a Dawes County felony arrest warrant charging him with one count of conspiracy to commit a class III felony, and delivery of a controlled substance (LSD & MDMA). The 17 year-old is currently being held in the Cheyenne County Jail on a bond of 10% of $50,000.00.

This investigation began when Chadron Police were called to a report of a missing juvenile and subsequently served a search warrant on a residence in Chadron. The WING Task Force then set up the purchase of LSD from 18 year-old Brody Grandberg of Chadron and a 17 year old male from Scottsbluff. Both were arrested in Chadron for felony delivery and possession of LSD and MDMA on October 23rd.

This drug investigation led Wing to Sidney Wednesday night and local authorities arrested 31 year-old Jennifer Cartwright and her boyfriend 30 year-old Walter Fischer, both of Sidney. Jennifer Cartwright is the mother of the 17 year-old Sidney male arrested Wednesday night
