Doniphan woman sentenced for meth distribution charge
LINCOLN, Neb. (KSNB) - A Doniphan woman heading to prison on a drug charge.
Stacy Lynn Delamotte, 36, was sentenced Friday in federal court for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.
United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Delamotte to 70 months’ imprisonment. After her release from prison, she will begin a 4-year term of supervised release. She will also forfeit to the United States $6,000 in United States currency. The money seized was proceeds from her drug activities.
On March 24, 2021, officers from the Grand Island Police Department responded to a report of shoplifting at Menards in Grand Island. When confronted, Delamotte fled on foot. Officers located her vehicle in the parking lot, a 2013 Chrysler 300, and reviewed the surveillance video showing Delamotte getting out of the vehicle.
Officers then towed and obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and found approximately one ounce of methamphetamine on the floor of the passenger seat. A backpack was removed and searched, finding approximately two more ounces of methamphetamine, a digital scale, and a small baggie containing an additional one gram of methamphetamine. Investigators gained access to the locked glove box and recovered $6,000 in United States currency.
This case was investigated by the Grand Island Police Department and the Nebraska State Patrol.
