McCOOK, Neb. — A McCook man received jail time last month in Red Willow County District Court on a misdemeanor conviction for attempted possession of methamphetamine.

The man, 46-year-old Robby J. Carfield formerly of 602 West 3rd Street, accepted a plea agreement in November reducing a Class IV felony alleging possession of methamphetamine to a Class I misdemeanor for attempted possession. Carfield was subsequently sentenced to 300 days in jail on the misdemeanor offense, with credit given for 62 days already served.

Carfield was arrested last March after his mother contacted law enforcement officers with concerns over his drug use in her West 3rd Street home, as well as a fear of some of the people coming to her house as a result, according to court documents.

A subsequent search warrant of the home resulted in a variety of drug related items being confiscated from Carfield’s bedroom. The items included six methamphetamine pipes with residue; two scales with residue, one meth and the other marijuana; one marijuana tooter/pipe with residue; one tablespoon with meth residue; one 1/3 cup measuring cup with meth residue; and a propane torch with three glass tubes believed to be in the midst of being turned into drug paraphernalia.
