On Tuesday, detectives from the Barton County Sheriff’s Office obtained three search warrants for methamphetamine and other illegal drugs. The search warrants were obtained with the assistance and cooperation from the Great Bend Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir said.
Search warrants resulted in five arrests and were executed at the following locations 457 Kiowa Rd., Lot 1, and 113 Chisholm Trail, both in the County, and 227 5th St. in the city of Great Bend. Paraphernalia and controlled substances were found at all three locations and several subjects were arrested.
Arrested at the Chisholm Trail address was Brandon Dannebohm, age 31, of Great Bend. Dannebohm was arrested on a no-bond warrant for probation violation and possession of methamphetamine. Also arrested at the location was Robin Pierce, age 29, of Great Bend for possession of marijuana, and Raymond Chapman, age 39, of Pawnee Rock. Chapman was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held in lieu of a $2,500 bond. Pierce’s bond was also set at $2,500.
Two further arrests were made at the Kiowa Road address, Kyla Robertson, age 19, of Great Bend for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and is being held in lieu of a $2,500 bond. And 22-year-old Chris Morris for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and is also being held on a $2,500 bond.
All remained in custody as of Wednesday morning.
Several more arrests are expected in the next 48 hours and the Sheriff’s Office expects to execute further search warrants very soon, Bellendir said.
“Sheriff’s detectives and deputies, city police officers and special agents from the KBI, spent a considerable amount of time and effort gathering information to be used in the affidavits to obtain the warrants,” the sheriff said.
Due to the number of warrants in hand, and the necessity to execute all three warrants simultaneously, detectives and deputies from the Barton County Sheriff’s Office, officers of the Great Bend Police Department, special agents from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Hoisington police officers were used.
“These warrants and arrests reflect the results of mutual cooperation between the Sheriff’s Office, Great Bend Police Department, Hoisington Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation,” Bellendir said
