A Mitchell man faces drug charges after being arrested with small quantities of methamphetamine.

Loos was arrested on Dec. 31 after authorities executed a search warrant at 160624 Spring Creek Road. Loos was the sole occupant of the residence and deputies allege they located a baggie of white residue, believed to be methamphetamine, inside a desk that was directly in front of Loos, and located a glass pipe with burnt residue. Deputies also located a 9 mm pistol and two full magazines, according to the arrest affidavit.

Loos appeared in Scotts Bluff County Court on Wednesday. His bond was set at $10,000.

He will next appear in court on Jan. 8.
