Deputies in Fremont County arrested a Colorado man Tuesday morning following a traffic stop in Hamburg. A vehicle driven by 32-year old Nicholas James Buck, of Ft. Morgan, CO., was stopped at around 7:30-a.m., for having fictitious license plates. The deputy learned Buck was wanted on a warrant out of Lancaster County, NE., and detained him while the Fremont County K9 “Argo” conducted a search in and around the vehicle.
During the search, the dog alerted to the presence of a controlled substance. The deputy found just over 3/4 of a pound of a substance resembling methamphetamine in the vehicle, and several items of drug paraphernalia.
Buck was arrested for Possession of a Counterfeit Controlled Substance with the intent to deliver, failure to have insurance, operating a motor vehicle without a license, and operating a non-registered vehicle. He was being held in the Fremont County Jail on $100,000 bond.
