(Orleans, NE) – A man from Orleans, Nebraska is behind bars following an investigation into reports of minors purchasing THC and nicotine products from an adult.
The Nebraska State Patrol said the investigation began earlier this month when the Lexington Police Department received reports that minors were purchasing THC and nicotine vape products. Investigators say the investigation found that the minors purchased the products from someone they connected with through social media.
Investigators were able to identify the suspect as Hector Lugo, 22, of Orleans, Nebraska. The NSP says a search warrant was served at Lugo’s residence in Orleans, where investigators found THC vape cartridges, more than six pounds of THC edibles, a large machete, drug accessories and apparent drug money. An arrest warrant was then issued against Lugo. Lugo was arrested on Tuesday for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a lethal weapon by a banned person and possession of money in a drug. He was incarcerated in the Dawson County Jail.
The CODE Task Force, the Lexington Police Department, the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol were involved in the investigation.
