In addition, a 46-year-old man was arrested as he had an outstanding warrant in Keith County for possession of a controlled substance.

All were transported to the Lincoln County Detention Center. More charges could be added, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office media release.

The warrant was served at the residence by sheriff’s deputies, Nebraska State Patrol troopers and members of the department’s SWAT team, North Platte police officers and federal agents.

The 7 a.m. raid came a few weeks after the Sheriff’s Office developed probable cause to search the residence about five miles northeast of North Platte, according to the release.

Law enforcement officers searched the residence, garage and campers parked in the yard during the raid.
