Redfield Man Facing Drug Charges
Drugs Seized During Traffic Stop, Leads to Search Warrant in Columbus
Just before 2:00 p.m. on Monday, April 18th, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a 2002 Chevy Truck driven by Jeremi Robinson, 37, of Redfield, Kansas.
“Over the weekend we received information that Robinson was involved in illegal meth activity, which prompted our investigators to begin conducting surveillance on him, ultimately leading to the traffic stop early Monday afternoon,” stated Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves.
“Robinson was placed under arrest for Driving with a Suspended License and a search warrant for his truck was obtained based upon information gathered as part of our investigation. During the course of that search, detectives discovered methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.”
“In addition to the truck Robinson was driving, our office also obtained a search warrant for his camper trailer, which was located at the VFW pond in Columbus. During that search, detectives located more methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and items consistent with the use and distribution of illegal drugs,” added Groves.
Robinson is currently being held in the Cherokee County Jail on allegations of Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Driving While Suspended. His bond has been set at $19,000.00.
“This suspect is believed to have been involved in selling drugs at a park where area kids fish and where families spend time together. I’m proud of the work done by those involved with this case, removing him from that park and taking him into custody,” concluded Groves.
Formal charges are expected to be filed later today by the Cherokee County Attorney’s Office.
