NORFOLK, Neb. -- Multiple people were arrested on drug charges over the weekend in Norfolk.

On Saturday just before 6:30 p.m., a Norfolk Police officer reported observing a vehicle driven by 58-year-old Bradley R. Bussey of Norfolk.

The officer knew Bussey and knew that his driver's license was suspended, NPD officials said. A traffic stop was conducted and Bussey was arrested for driving under suspension.

During a search of the vehicle, officers reportedly located two syringes. One of the syringes was loaded, Norfolk Police Capt, Chad Reiman said. The contents of the syringe field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Bussey was booked into the Norfolk City Jail on multiple charges and was later transported to the Madison County Jail.

Approximately two and a half hours later, a Norfolk Police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of the 1300 block of Pasewalk Ave.

As the officer approached the vehicle, he reportedly observed a plastic baggie that contained a white powdery substance in the vehicle.

The officer also reported observing open alcohol containers. The driver of the vehicle, 24-year-old Arturo Hernandez of Norfolk, showed signs of impairment and also provided a sample of breath that tested over the legal limit, NPD said.

During the investigation, the white powdery substance was field tested and tested positive for cocaine, Reiman said. Hernandez also reportedly had pills on his person that were determined to be a controlled substance.

Hernandez was arrested for DUI and two counts of possession of a controlled substance. The two passengers in the vehicle, 21-year-old Ronald Garcia and 23-year-old Oscar Hernandez, both of Norfolk, were arrested for possession of a controlled substance and cited for possession of marijuana.

The three subjects were held in the Norfolk City Jail and later transported to the Madison County Jail.
