North Platte couple face marijuana manufacturing charge

The Nebr. State Patrol bust a marijuana growing operation in North Platte.  A State Trooper delivered a search warrant Monday at the home of 46 year old Richard Wyant. He was wanted for distribution of a controlled substance. After he was taken to jail, the Trooper returned to the home because he suspected something wasn’t right. Wyant’s wife, 48 year old Donna Wyant gave the trooper permission to search the home where they found 27 marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana. Donna Wyant is charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. Richard Wyant faces that additional charge.
