Former NSP employee who stole $1.2 million in drugs files for guilty plea

LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) — A former Nebraska State Patrolman has entered into a plea deal in a federal drug case involving more than $1.2 million in drug theft from an NSP evidence locker.

Anna Idigima pleaded guilty to one of the charges: conspiracy to distribute and possession to distribute five or more kilograms of cocaine, a quantifiable amount of fentanyl and marijuana.

As part of the deal, two drug dealing charges resulting in serious bodily harm were dropped.

Idigima’s investigation led investigators to conclude that the stolen drugs she was distributing were the cause of a number of overdoses at Lincoln.

While she will not be charged with it, the plea agreement formally entered into on Tuesday says that the fact that three people were injured and she used a trust position will affect her sentencing.

She could face 20 years to life in prison and a fine of up to $10 million. If released, she would also have to be on parole for at least five years.

Her co-defendant, George Weaver Jr., has not reached a plea deal and is due back in court at the end of next month.

Sentencing of Idigima is scheduled for March 25 at 2:30 pm.
