NEBRASKA CITY  - An Elk Creek couple is charged in Otoe County after they were stopped with a shopping list and items linked to the manufacture of methamphetamine on Aug. 24.

An Otoe County sheriff’s deputy made a traffic stop on Highway 75 after a car driven by 36-year-old Krystal Thompson crossed the fog line and went onto the median. An Otoe County K9 unit was called to assist and court records say the K9 indicated to the presence of a controlled substance.

Arrest affidavits for Thompson and 36-year-old Jared Kirkendall say seven grams of methamphetamine were found, as well as numerous pills and syringes filled with fluid meth and blood.

The affidavit says items in the car, including pseudoephedrine packages purchased from multiple businesses, starting fluid and plastic hosing are items used in the manufacture of meth.

A “shopping list” was also found in the car. The deputy told the court the list contained AAA batteries, but said “if we can’t steal them, don’t buy them.”

A personal recognizance bond was set for Thompson and a $10,000 bond set for Kirkendall.
