Nine adults and five juveniles charged
Thanks to a joint effort between the Rose Hill Police Department, the Andover Police Department and the Wichita Police Department, 10 adults and five juveniles have been charged following a drug investigation in Rose Hill.
“On April 14, 2013, an officer of the Rose Hill Police Department responded to the report of a disturbance in the 1000 block of N. Cedar Point,” said Rose Hill Police Chief Bob Sage. “When the officer arrived, he encountered a juvenile male who was under the influence of an unknown substance. The subject was eventually taken into custody with the assistance of an Andover officer using a Taser.”
He went on to explain the juvenile, who was under the influence of 25i, was transported to an area hospital for treatment and was later released, but the incident sparked an investigation related to the sale and distribution by Sgt. Terry Love.
“Twenty individuals were interviewed, one search warrant was executed on a residence and cell phone data was processed and analyzed,” explained Sage. “The case was present to the Butler County Attorney’s office and charges were filed.”
With the findings of the investigation, nine adults and five juveniles were charged with unlawful use of a communications facility and one adult was charged with distribution of marijuana, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and twenty counts of unlawful use of a communications facility.
