NORTH PLATTE, Neb. -- A woman from North Platte received almost four years in prison for a meth-related charge.

U.S. Attorney Steven Russell said 45-year-old Catherine Gibson, of North Platte, was sentenced in federal court in Omaha on Wednesday. She was charged for her role in a methamphetamine conspiracy and will serve 46 months in prison with a three-year term of supervised release after. There is no parole in the federal system.

According to court documents, Gibson was part of a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in western Nebraska in February and March of 2021. Gibson sold 28 grams of meth to an informant as part of the conspiracy on Feb. 22, 2021, and Feb. 23, 2021.

Officials said law enforcement searched Gibson’s rental car and found 110 grams of meth (actual) and 10 fentanyl pills on March 3, 2021. Officers also searched Gibson’s home in Alliance and found an additional 92 grams of meth. Gibson told officers that she picked up meth 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation.
