Preliminary Hearing Set for Blue Springs Man, in Drug Arrest

BEATRICE – A Blue Springs man faces a March 28th preliminary hearing after being charged in an undercover drug purchase, conducted last May.

59-year-old Steven Caporale was arrested on a warrant, last week.  He posted ten-percent of a $25,000 appearance bond and has been released.  The warrant was issued after a Nebraska State Patrol investigation that made use of a confidential informant, to allegedly buy methamphetamine from Caporale.

Authorities say the arranged purchase involved $300 changing hands for three grams of meth.

The transaction occurred in the parking lot of a Wymore convenience store, last May 19th.
