A search warrant served at a Kearney home turns up meth and other tools for alleged drug distribution.
Police searched the shared trailer of 28-year-old Sherri Burrows and 31-year-old Veronica Ring where the two women's five children also live.
The search turned up 10 ounces of meth and another 14 grams of a substance suspected to be marijuana.
Ziplock baggies, pills, scales and other drug paraphernalia were also found along with $4,200 in cash in a lockbox.
Neighbors in the area told NTV they had their suspicions about possible drug activity in Burrow's and Ring's house.
"The neighbors were talking how people would come up in their cars at night and park close to their trailer. Walk down the street towards this trailer, and then they would sit there for a few minutes," a neighbor said. "Then they would come back and off they go."
None of the trailer's occupants were home at the time of the search and the children, ranging from ages 7 to 12, have been placed in temporary custody with the state Department of Health and Human Services.
Ring is charged with three counts of felony child abuse and distribution of meth while Burrows faces two child abuse charges along with distribution of meth and marijuana.
