Drug investigation ongoing after Baldwin City raid

May 1, 2008

Friday's arrest of a 21-year-old Baldwin City woman for possession and sale of drugs is just the tip of the iceberg, said Police Chief Mike McKenna.

"It's still under investigation," said McKenna. "We've been working on that investigation for some time. We are aware that drugs are being sold in Baldwin City.

"If you're involved, don't be surprised to have to pay the consequences," he said.

Baldwin City police served a drug search warrant at around 9 a.m. Friday in the 200 block of Baker. The 21-year-old was arrested on charges of possession of and sales of both hallucinogenic drugs and depressants, he said.

"Those are the charges we have now," said Sgt. Greg Schiffelbein. "There could be more later."

The woman has since been released from Douglas County Jail on bond. Although McKenna wasn't here for the arrest, he was happy with how it was handled.

"I'm real pleased with the drug warrant that was served," said McKenna. "We continue to work with the KBI and the DA and once we've completed the investigation we will turn our files over to them."

There were two other people at the house where the arrest was made. The woman's 2-year-old daughter was taken into protective custody because of the conditions, said Schiffelbein. An older male, whose age was not available, was not arrested.
