Scottsbluff man busted for selling drugs out of home

A Scottsbluff man is behind bars after police received several complaints about possible drug deals being done at his house.

27-year-old James Halstead was arrested Monday afternoon after police obtained a search warrant for his house at 1301 Avenue I.

He was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of marijuana (less than one ounce), and possession of drug paraphernalia.)

Police received their first complaint on December 7, 2012; stating that young males kept frequenting the home, stay for a short amount of time, then leave.

On April 5th, police heard rumors that high school aged individuals have been purchasing Molly (a powdered mixture of MDMA and methamphetamine) from the occupants.

Yesterday, police conducted a trash pull at the home, and found mail addressed to Halstead, as well as several torn corner baggies that contained trace amounts of methamphetamine.

Police obtained a  search warrant and found numerous items of drug paraphernalia, a baggy and a vial containing methamphetamine, a zip lock baggie containing marijuana, a small digital scale, and baggies containing marijuana and methamphetamine residue.

Halstead admitted that most of the items lying in plain sight in the bedroom were his.
