December 1, 2017 GMT

Two Lincoln residents were arrested on warrants after allegedly selling cocaine and marijuana in Beatrice earlier this year.

In May, Gage County deputies conducted a controlled buy of cocaine and marijuana from 23-year-old Nicholas J. Allen.

Law enforcement outfitted a confidential informant with recording devices and provided the informant with $500 to make the buy.

Allen was contacted by the informant, and said he was bringing 24 grams of marijuana and 3.5 grams of cocaine from Lincoln to sell. The two met at a car wash in Beatrice to conduct the buy.

The arrest warrant states Allen said his girlfriend, later identified as 21-year-old Teresa M. Tremel, would be driving and they would be coming in a Dodge Dart.

Law enforcement followed Allen to the car wash and got into the informant’s vehicle.

The warrant states authorities could clearly hear the two speaking, and two minutes later, Allen left the vehicle.

Another controlled buy was conducted in June, during which an informant was provided with $800 for one ounce of marijuana and seven grams of cocaine.

Tremel was identified by law enforcement as being in the vehicle Allen arrived in.

Allen was arrested for distribution of 10-28 grams of cocaine, two counts distribution of marijuana and not having a drug tax stamp.

Tremel was arrested for two counts of aiding and abetting a class 2 felony and two counts of aiding and abetting a class 3 felony

Allen’s bond was set at $10,000 with a 10 percent deposit in Gage County Court, while Tremel’s bond was set at $7,500 with a 10 percent deposit.

Both are due back in court Dec. 8.
