BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - A 25-year-old man was arrested after a sheriff’s deputy spotted what looked like drug paraphernalia when the man tried to go through a courtroom security checkpoint at the Gage County Courthouse in Beatrice.

Authorities say the man was headed into the courtroom for his hearing on two other cases. The man’s black glasses case set off a metal detector at the checkpoint. An arrest report says the case was partially open and the deputy could see small plastic bags inside.

The Beatrice Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1ZED5YN ) that the man gave the case to the deputy, and a spoon inside the case later tested positive for methamphetamine.

The man was taken into custody. Online court records don’t yet show that he’s been charged.
