A 43-year-old Scottsbluff man will not stand trial after getting caught with more than 13 grams of methamphetamine in his vehicle earlier this year.

Scott Biery was pulled over in January for a traffic violation on Highway 71, and troopers ultimately found 13.4 grams of meth, several syringes, and approximately two ounces of marijuana.

Biery and 27-year-old passenger Ramona Prime were both  arrested for possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of meth with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana more than an ounce but less than a pound and drug paraphernalia.

Earlier this year, Prime pleaded no contest to an amended charge of Attempted Possession of a Controlled Substance and received 18 months of probation.

Biery was slated to appear for his pre-trial conference today in Scotts Bluff County District Court, but earlier this week pleaded guilty to an amended charge of Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, a Class 2 Felony.

He faces a prison sentence ranging from 1 to 50 years when he’s back in court for his October 4th sentencing.
