Federal court records say the trial is set for 9 a.m. Feb. 6 for Anna Idigima, 37, and George Weaver Jr., 37.
Idigima and her boyfriend, Weaver Jr., 36, have both been charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine, a detectable amount of fentanyl and a detectable amount of marijuana.
Officials said Idigima was a Nebraska State Patrol employee who worked in the evidence unit when the drugs were stolen from an evidence storage facility for Weaver to sell.
The stolen drugs have been traced to drug deaths and have led prosecutors to drop cases.
