Two suspects were arrested during the weekend after tests of their belongings were positive for meth.

Calvin Theus, 35, was initially charged in April, and Cody Williams, 31, was initially charged in late March, police spokesman Matt Elder said.


On April 19, police saw Theus near G and Dewey and were aware that probable cause existed to charge him with possession of a controlled substance.

During a search of Theus’ person, officers found more suspected methamphetamine which was sent to the Nebraska Crime Lab for testing.

On Sept. 12, the lab report was received, and the presence of meth was confirmed.  Theus was charged accordingly and incarcerated at the Lincoln County jail.



At 1:23 a.m. on March 29, police went to the 2400 block of West Ninth to check out a reported disturbance. A man there said he had just been assaulted by Williams.

The victim said during the disturbance, Williams pointed a handgun at him and also hit him in the face with the gun. The victim had minor injuries consistent with his story, Elder said.

Williams was gone when police arrived, but police found his vehicle shortly after it had left, and saw it traveling erratically.

The car was pulled over in the 400 block of N. Jeffers. Williams was intoxicated at this time, according to the police report.

Police saw a handgun in the vehicle, which was reported stolen in 2011.  After investigation, Williams was charged with terroristic threats, second-degree assault, use of a weapon to commit a felony, possession of a stolen firearm, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Williams was taken jail. Officers also found suspected meth, which was sent to the Nebraska Crime Lab.

The lab report confirmed the substance in Williams’ vehicle was methamphetamine, and on Sept. 11, police charged Williams with meth possession and took him to the Lincoln County jail.
