A 45-year-old North Platte woman was sentenced last Thursday in federal court in Omaha for her role in a methamphetamine conspiracy.

U.S. District Judge Brian Buescher sentenced Catherine Gibson- formerly of Alliance and Henry- to 46 months in federal prison for her part in a conspiracy to sell methamphetamine in Alliance.

As part of the conspiracy, Gibson sold 28 grams of methamphetamine to an informant in two controlled buys in February and March of 2021.

Then in early March of 2021, law enforcement searched Gibson’s rental car and located approximately 110 grams of methamphetamine and 10 fentanyl pills.

On the same day, officers searched Gibson’s Alliance residence and located an additional approximately 92 grams of methamphetamine.

Gibson told officers that she had picked up methamphetamine and was bringing it to Alliance to sell.

This case was investigated by the Nebraska State Patrol, the Box Butte County Sheriff’s Office, and the FBI.
