LINCOLN, Neb. – A Lincoln woman claims she accepted a package of methamphetamine to earn forgiveness after being accused of stealing drugs and money from Mexican drug dealers.
Nicole Delgado, 33, is facing charges of possession of methamphetamine, over 140 grams, in Lancaster County Court.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Lincoln Police officers were contacted by Homeland Security about a suspicious package that came across the Mexico/United States border. The package was intercepted by Homeland Security in Cincinnati.
The package, which held three baggies of methamphetamine totaling 419 grams, was addressed to Delgado and contained a Northeast Lincoln address.
The affidavit states an undercover investigator for LPD delivered the package to Delgado after removing two baggies of the meth, leaving 177 grams inside.
Delgado signed for the delivery, and a short time later was seen exiting the back of the home with the package in hand. She was contacted by police and arrested.
Delgado told officers she had been accused of stealing 15 pounds and $50,000 from Mexican drug dealers, and had recently received a call from one of them stating if she accepted the package, all would be forgiven, according to court records.
Bond for Delgado has been set at $750,000.
