On Friday, March 23, 2018, at about 9:30 p.m., officers served a search warrant at a residence in the 200 block of Coolidge Street in furtherance of an ongoing drug investigation. Quantities of suspected marijuana and methamphetamine were seized.

The residence was occupied by four persons at the time of the search warrant service. A 28 year old male ran from officers as they approached the residence. He was apprehended in the immediate area. A 20 year old female, an 18 year old female and a 17 year old female were secured inside the residence. No injuries were reported.

The 28 year old male and 20 year old female residents were taken into custody. The other two females were questioned and released.

An affidavit was submitted to the Seward County Attorney’s Office seeking charges of distribution of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, no drug tax stamp, conspiracy, aggravated child endangerment and interference with law enforcement.

The Seward County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the investigation. The investigation of this incident is ongoing.
