Three men arrested in a drug bust in Mitchell pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing methamphetamine.

Tyler Neugebauer, 21, Thomas Gregg, 26, and Jose Gonzalez, 43, pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine, a class 5 felony, during a circuit court session Tuesday at the Davison County Public Safety Center in Mitchell.

Neugebauer also pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, a class 4 felony.

Neugebauer faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine. Charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, violating a drug-free zone, keeping a place for the sale or use of a controlled substance, possession of between 2 ounces and one-half pound of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.

Gonzalez and Gregg face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Gonzalez was also facing charges of possession of drugs with intent to distribute, violating a drug-free zone and keeping a place for the sale or use of a controlled substance, which were dismissed.

The charges stem from searches of Neugebauer and Gonzalez's homes on Dec. 11 and Dec. 13, about one-block south of Dry Run Creek Park, where police found methamphetamine and marijuana.

Cory Linderman, who lives with Gonzalez, was also arrested in December but did not appear in court on Tuesday. Linderman faces several charges, including possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute in a drug-free zone.

Sentencing for Neugebauer, Gonzalez and Gregg was scheduled for May.
