Parkland man charged with meth distribution
A Parkland man who allegedly planned to distribute more than $5,000 worth of methamphetamine waived his preliminary hearing in Douglas County Circuit Court last week.
Jacob Colt Johnson, 32, faces one felony count of possess with intent to deliver methamphetamine and misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, all as a repeater. He remained in custody at the Douglas County Jail on Thursday on a $25,000 cash bond.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators with the Superior Police Department and Douglas County Sheriff's Office set up a controlled delivery of meth to Johnson in July at a Superior motel. Johnson was "fronted" meth with a street value of $5,700 for $2,000 and arrested when he walked out of the motel room.
Law enforcement officers found the fronted meth on Johnson as well as a smaller amount of meth consistent with personal use.
A search warrant was executed on Johnson's Parkland home, where a small quantity of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found.
If Johnson is convicted, the felony charge carries a maximum penalty of 40 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000. His next court appearance was set for Sept. 21.
