Reno County Courthouse 2

The three people arrested by the Reno County Drug Unit after they served a search warrant at a Hutchinson home back on January 7, were all in court for the formal reading of charges

Arrested in the case was 21-year-old Dustin Bright, 20-year-old Susanna Chavez and 22-year-old Zachary Decker.

The home belonged to Bright and after being read his Miranda rights, he allegedly admitted to having hydrocodone, drug paraphernalia and marijuana in his room and on his person. Officers allege they also located a bag of a white crystal substance weighing approximately 2.7-grams in his bedroom. Charges include possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, no tax stamp and possession of the lortab.

He faces charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of hydrocodone, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and not tax stamp.

Chavez was checked for warrants and her back pack was searched and allegedly a spoon with residue was found, along with a cut straw and a zip-lock bag with white crystal residue. She was charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.

She also has another case pending where she’s charged with burglary and theft from a case going back to August 12, 2012. That case is still pending in front of Judge Tim Chambers.

Decker was arrested on charges for having three prescription pills in his front left pocket which he allegedly stated he wanted to sell for profit.

With the formal charges filed against the three, all will be back in court for a waiver-status hearing next month.
