STANTON, Neb. – A northeast Nebraska man recently convicted of theft has pleaded guilty to a meth-related charge. 

36-year-old Zachary Price, of Norfolk, will be sentenced in April after entering a guilty plea on Monday in Stanton County District Court. 

Price pleaded guilty to a charge of meth possession related to his arrest last fall near the Bega School north of Stanton. 

A co-defendant was arrested by the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office at the same time and has already been given a prison sentence. 

 In a separate case, Price also pleaded guilty to theft in regards to the unlawful taking of a vehicle in Woodland Park and selling it to the Alter metal yard in Norfolk. 

 The vehicle was recovered before it could be crushed.
