A North Platte teenage was charged Thursday with drug distribution after he was allegedly nabbed in an undercover buy.

In December and January, North Platte police and other law officers conducted controlled buys of marijuana from Kristian Shackelford, 18, of North Platte.

Shackelford sold marijuana on two separate occasions, police spokesman John Deal said, and they obtained warrants for his arrest for pot distribution.

At 12:52 a.m. Wednesday, an officer stopped a vehicle near Rodeo Rd. and Sheridan because the brake lights didn’t work.

The driver was identified as Abcde Griffin, 19, of North Platte. Shackelford was the passenger and police took him into custody for the distribution warrants.

A small amount of marijuana was also found in his clothing, police spokesman John Deal said.

His bond is set at $100,000.

Also, when the vehicle was searched, a small amount of marijuana in a pipe was found. Griffin took responsibility for that, Deal said. She was cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and released.

The investigation into Shackelford’s activities, including the undercover buy, was coordinated through the Cooperating Drug Enforcement (CODE) task force, a structure under which officers from different agencies work together, Deal said.
