United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Stacy Lynn Delamotte, 36, of Doniphan, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Lincoln for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.  United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Delamotte to 70 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.  After her release from prison, she will begin a 4-year term of supervised release.  She will also forfeit to the United States $6,000 in United States currency. The money seized was proceeds from her drug activities.

On March 24, 2021, officers from the Grand Island Police Department responded to a report of shoplifting at Menards in Grand Island.  Delamotte tried to conceal items inside of a box in an attempt to avoid paying for them.  When confronted, she fled on foot.  Officers located her vehicle in the parking lot, a 2013 Chrysler 300.  A review of the surveillance video showed Delamotte exit the driver’s seat of the Chrysler 300 upon arriving at Menards.

Officers then towed and obtained a search warrant for the vehicle.  The search revealed approximately one ounce of methamphetamine on the floor of the passenger seat. A backpack was removed and searched. Inside the backpack officers found approximately two more ounces of methamphetamine, a digital scale, and a small baggie containing an additional one gram of methamphetamine. Investigators gained access to the locked glove box and recovered $6,000 in United States currency. 

This case was investigated by the Grand Island Police Department and the Nebraska State Patrol.
