GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — The number of arrests in a central Kansas drug investigation is up to five in slightly more than a week.
KWCH-TV reports sheriff’s deputies arrested three people June 17 in Great Bend and rural Barton County. Authorities reported seizing motor vehicles, drug paraphernalia and 9 ounces of methamphetamine with a street value of more than $20,000.
Several children were taken into protective custody as a result of those arrests.
The Barton County sheriff says two more people were arrested Tuesday in Great Bend on meth-related charges, possession of stolen property and, in one case, three counts of child endangerment.
The sheriff’s office says the investigation continues and more arrests are possible.
