Hugoton Police Make Drug Arrest After Suspect Runs

Joe Denoyer - April 22, 2022 8:33 am

On Sunday, April 17th, an officer with the Hugoton Police Department initiated a traffic stop in the 400 block of S. Vanburen Street in Hugoton. The officer made contact with the driver who was asked to step out of the vehicle. While speaking with the officer, the driver fled the scene on foot. The officer chased the suspect for several blocks before he was assisted by members of the Stevens County Fire department, who happened to be in the area for training. With assistance of several firefighters, the officer was able to place the suspect in custody.

The officer and several firefighters retraced the route of the chase and were able to locate two small bags of methamphetamine that the suspect threw while fleeing. These bags landed in a fenced in backyard where two young children were playing at the time. An Affidavit was forwarded to the Stevns County Attorney for formal charges.
