PITTSBURG, Kan. — Four people were arrested and some marijuana, anabolic steroids, firearms and cash were seized when drug task force agents served a search warrant Thursday at a residence in Pittsburg.
Pittsburg police and the Crawford County Drug Task Force searched a residence at 2204 Timber Lane, seizing undisclosed amounts of marijuana and steroids, two firearms, $2,600 cash and some stolen city street signs, according to the Pittsburg Police Department.
Arrested were Stewart Merritt, 20, Austin Atkins, 19, and Jacob Delks, 21, all of Pittsburg; and Tanner L. Rankin, 20, of Spring Hill, police said. All four were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen property. Merritt also was charged with possession of the steroids and criminal use of a firearm.
• In an unrelated arrest, a 20-year-old man was charged with felony possession of hallucinogenic mushrooms and other offenses following a traffic stop early Thursday morning in Pittsburg.
An officer stopped a car at 3:09 a.m. near the intersection of Cleveland and Olive streets for an equipment violation. The driver, Gregory A. Singleton, of Pittsburg, was arrested when it was discovered that his driver’s license was suspended.
Police said a search of Singleton’s vehicle allegedly turned up marijuana, some mushrooms, drug paraphernalia and a bottle of liquor. Singleton was charged with possession of hallucinogens, depressants and drug paraphernalia, driving while suspended, and consumption of alcohol as a minor.
