Nebraska couple arrested, accused of running pot business

February 8, 2019

GRETNA, Neb. (AP) — Eastern Nebraska officials say a Gretna husband and wife who run a glass pipe shop have been arrested after the shop and their home were raided.

The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office says deputies served a warrant Thursday night at NE-Thing Smokin’ Glass Shop in Gretna and found a pound of marijuana, a pound of THC wax, psychedelic mushrooms, several ounces of hashish and three loaded handguns.

Authorities say a subsequent search of the couple’s home turned up a marijuana growing operation, with nine mature plants, processed marijuana, grow lights and equipment to make THC wax.

Officials say two children were at the home when it was searched. In addition to possession with intent to deliver charges, the couple also faces child abuse counts.
