LEXINGTON, Neb. (TCD) -- A 39-year-old woman has been arrested and charged for an alleged attempted murder plot involving multiple people.
A concerned citizen reported Valerie Miller of Elwood to the Gosper County Sheriff’s Office after she made suspicious comments, the Nebraska State Patrol said in a news release. A Nebraska State Patrol investigator went undercover and reportedly contacted Miller online, and they arranged to meet in person.
According to the Nebraska State Patrol, Miller and the undercover investigator met on Monday, Oct. 3, in the afternoon, and Miller tried to hire the undercover investigator to carry out the murder of five specific people.
Miller reportedly drove for about 2 miles after the meeting and was stopped by troopers. She was arrested and booked into Dawson County Jail for conspiracy to commit murder, five counts of attempted first-degree murder, and making terroristic threats, the Nebraska State Patrol said.
Multiple law enforcement agencies worked together during this investigation, including the Nebraska State Patrol, FBI, CODE Task Force, and the Gosper County Sheriff’s Office.
