HUTCHINSON — Three people arrested in the early morning hours of March 9 on drug-related charges were before a judge again Monday for the reading of formal charges.
David Joshua Logan, 26, Alisha Brown, 20, and Dustin Ray Berry, 22, face charges of being in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, and personal use drug paraphernalia.
The arrests came during a traffic stop on K-96 and Kent Road. The Reno County Sheriff’s deputy who made the stop reportedly could smell marijuana when he made contact with the occupants, and a search of the vehicle allegedly led to the discovery of a gallon-sized bag of marijuana, paraphernalia and a fully-loaded handgun.
It is believed that they purchased the marijuana in Wichita and intended to sell it in Hutchinson.
During a court hearing Monday, Brown claimed she was being threatened by the family of one of the other suspects. After the hearing, she was taken to the law enforcement center to make of report over the threats.
The three are scheduled to be back in court next month.
