Great Bend Police Department executed the narcotic search warrant with assistance from the Barton County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a statement released by the GBPD, one man was arrested and more arrests are pending as the investigation continues.

The police log shows that during the search of the residence an officer also located a .22 JC Higgins rifle that was reportedly stolen. An outside agency assist case was taken for the Pratt Police Department.
