Mitchell man to face trial in June on meth charge

A 27 year old Mitchell man will face trial in June on a felony drug charge after being arraigned in Scotts Bluff County District Court Friday. George Valles entered a not guilty plea to the charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver (more than 140 grams). A January 10th search of his Mitchell home led to the seizure of over 18 ounces of methamphetamine.

A request for a reduction in bond was denied by Judge Randy Lippstreau. Valles will continue to be held on $500,000 bond with a 10% cash provision. A pre-trial conference will be held on May 22nd with the case slated for trial during the June 3rd jury term.
