NEBRASKA CITY – Otoe County prosecutors have amended charges against 54-year-old Roger Sterling of Nebraska City.

Sterling was charged with possession of meth in December, when police searched him following a visit to the probation office.

Police conducted a probation search on May 7 at his Fourth Terrace residence and say a bag containing more than 10 grams of meth was found, along with paraphernalia, scales and marijuana.

Sterling was released on a $500 bond provision, but was ordered to appear in court June 17 for preliminary hearing. Court records say he failed to appear for the Monday hearing. An arrest warrant was issued from the county court.
