Fairbury man arrested for protection order violation, search finds stockpile of drugs
FAIRBURY, NE — A Fairbury man wanted for violating a protection order will likely face additional charges after authorities found evidence of a drug operation at his house.
According to a news release, the Beatrice Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for 28-year-old Devon Kagy. He was suspected of two counts of a protection order violation and terroristic threats related to an incident Wednesday night in Beatrice.
Beatrice Police relayed the warrant to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, which then obtained a search warrant for Kagy’s house in the 1100 block of B Street in Fairbury. Sheriff Nick Georgi says Kagy drove away from the house as deputies were preparing to serve the warrant. They pulled him over and arrested him a couple blocks away.
Deputies still performed the search warrant and found meth, marijuana, THC edibles, THC wax, a large amount of psychedelic mushrooms, and numerous paraphernalia and distribution items.
Kagy is being held in the Gage County Jail for the charges related to Wednesday night. He is expected to face more charges in Jefferson County.
