Two sentenced in meth distribution case

Two of nine people arrested in a major WING Drug Task Force investigation last year have been sentenced to serve time in prison.

First, a 36 year old Gering man who led authorities on a nearly half hour chase in October and was convicted as part of a major drug investigation has been sentenced to six to eleven years in prison. Shawn Stacy was sentenced Wednesday to one to three years in prison for his plea to flight to avoid arrest and five to eight years in prison for distribution of methamphetamine.

Stacy was traveling at speeds up to 90 miles per hour on October 2nd as he took authorities on an estimated 20 mile chase that included off-road travel through bean fields, a farm yard, and over ditches. The chase began on East Overland in Scottsbluff, then proceeded to Highway 26 and on county roads north of Minatare and east of Scottsbluff. The pursuit ended when Stacy drove his car against a ditch embankment

When he was arrested, authorities said Stacy was driving under suspension, was wanted on a theft warrant, and for a protection order violation. Stacy has a lengthy criminal record dating back to the '90's.

Stacy was arrested on the drug count as part of an extensive investigation by the WING Drug Task Force.

Meanwhile, a 28 year old Gering woman charged with intent to distribute methamphetamine in connection with that same WING Drug Task Force investigation has been sentenced to serve 4 to 8 years in prison.

Amanda LeMay was one of a group of 9 people arrested in that WING drug bust in October of 2012. One of two charges of intent to distribute against LeMay was dropped.

LeMay was sentenced in Scotts Bluff County District Court Wednesday to serve 48 to 96 months in prison, with credit for 111 days already served.
