2 arrested in large meth bust in western Kansas

Steven Rains - June 28, 2019 6:59 pm

Two men from Philadelphia are jailed in western Kansas after authorities reported finding about 70 pounds of crystal methamphetamine in their vehicle.

Ford County Sheriff Bill Carr says the men were arrested Tuesday after a traffic stop on Highway 54 east of Bucklin.

He says after a deputy smelled raw marijuana while talking to the two men, a search found 80 cellophane packages wrapped in cellophane and a small amount of marijuana hidden in vehicle.

Carr estimated the methamphetamine was valued at more than $1.2 million.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports 30-year-old Nelson Alvarez-Castillo and 24-year-old Anthony Yapul are being held in the Ford County Detention Center awaiting possible charges.
