On Thursday afternoon, February 11, 2010, the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, along with the Galena Police Department and the Southeast Kansas Drug Enforcement Task Force, executed a search warrant on a home located just west of the Galena Highschool Campus.

Formal charges were filed Friday in Cherokee County District Court on two adults, as a result of the search.

Cynthia Cotten, 52 of the home, has been charged with Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia.  She posted $4,000.00 bond and was released from custody.

Clyde Thompson, 27, also of the home, remains in the Cherokee County Jail in lieu of $4,000.00 bond, and has also been charged with Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia.

As in all cases, suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
