Scottsbluff man agrees to plea in sale of drugs at local restaurant

A Scottsbluff man charged with multiple drug counts relating to his alleged sale of methamphetamine from the front counter of a local restaurant will enter a plea to reduced charges.

32-year-old Brian Ross, who was charged with three counts of distributing methamphetamine, will enter a plea to possession of methamphetamine in Scotts Bluff County Court. The Star Herald says the plea agreement was made after Ross agreed to testify in two other drug cases involving four people.

Court documents indicate Ross sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with Wing Drug Task Force investigators after the informant walked into Taco Town. The court document says the informant would go up to the counter, give Ross $100, ask for a Coca Cola and then be provided the soda and a bag containing a gram of methamphetamine.

The controlled buys occurred three times: March 22nd, March 23rd and April 5th earlier this year.The investigators placed a digital recording device on their informant each time and a video recording device during the transaction in April.
