Prosecutors say evidence was flushed as SWAT team gained entry
NEBRASKA CITY – Court records say a Nebraska City pair attempted to flush evidence while a Nebraska State Patrol SWAT team gained entrance to the 11th Corso residence of 59-year-old Gary Graham.
Graham and 55-year-old Jamie McGinnis are charged with possession of meth and tampering with evidence on Friday. A $75,000 bond has been set for Graham, who is also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon.
An arrest affidavit says the residence had paraphernalia with meth residue and methamphetamine was found in a picture frame in the living room. A plastic baggie and plastic cup were found in a small amount of water in the toilet bowl. Investigators say a piece of a glass smoking pipe had been flushed.
A rifle was found beneath the hood of Graham’s pickup and five large knives were seized from the house and truck.
Nebraska City police detained a man who was walking in the area of the search.
An arrest affidavit says Justin Graham, 33, of Nebraska City had an unloaded syringe in one pocket and a small bag containing three chunks of methamphetamine in the other. The affidavit says he also had possession of a scale with residue.
A $10,000 bond was set for Justin Graham.
