One Dearing man was arrested and a Coffeyville man with a previous arrest on narcotics charges was subsequently detained following a search of a home in Dearing on May 1.
Detective Chris Williams said the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department and the Coffeyville Police Department issued a search warrant for 103 Lemon in Dearing, where law enforcement found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and cash in a motor home.
Arrested at the scene was Robert Joseph Mikel, who was transported to the Montgomery County Jail to await charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
While conducting the search warrant at 103 Lemon, a sheriff’s deputy spotted a passing motorist who was later identified as Patrick Robinson of Coffeyville. Robinson was bond from a previous narcotic arrest. The deputy attempted to stop Robinson in his vehicle; however, Robinson failed to comply with the deputy’s request, Williams said.
“Robinson was ordered out of the vehicle and was taken into custody after a short struggle with officers,” said Williams, adding that Robinson was taken to the Montgomery County Jail in Independence without further incident.
