Prison ordered after meth found in search for Linda Dillard
PAWNEE CITY - A Pawnee County judge sentenced James Money, 63, of Table Rock to two years in prison and a year of post-release supervision for possession in July of 2021.
Court records say Nebraska State Patrol units served a search warrant for a 715 Road residence near Table Rock while investigating the disappearance of Linda Dillard. The Jefferson County woman was last seen near Table Rock in June of 2021.
Court records say troopers found methamphetamine linked to Money in the search of the “commune," which has a main residence, two campers and a trailer house.
Rolanda Johnson, 40, of Table Rock was among residents at the commune at the time of the search. She was charged with a vehicle title violation and was sentenced to 18 months probation.
The Pawnee County Sheriff’s Office participated in the search for Dillard, also known as Linda Clinebell. Family members told investigators that Dillard suffers from severe hip dysplasia and can walk only short distances.
Family members searched for Dillard at Money’s residence, where she had been staying. A wig belonging to her was found. Money told deputies he saw Dillard leave the property on foot at 3 a.m. on June 15, 2021.
Separate court documents say Dillard was last seen at the property on June 19.
Nearly 150 people participated in a search last March of 700 acres that included the Table Rock Wildlife Management Area, which is south of the commune on 715 Road.
The search was not successful. Nebraska Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information regarding the disappearance of Linda Dillard.
