Four Chanute residents were arrested Tuesday on drug-related charges after a search by police and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

Chanute police and the KBI served a search warrant at an apartment at the Safari Apartments, 1500 W. Main, and reported illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia located there. Two children were taken from the apartment and placed in police protective custody.

The four arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia were Joshua Hall, 38; Mahaley Jones, 32; Aaron Boudreaux, 27; and Mitchell Luna, 32. Hall also faces possession of a hallucinogenic drug and other warrants, and Jones faces possession of a depressant, aggravated child endangerment and possession of marijuana.

Upon competion, reports will be forwarded to the Neosho County Attorney’s office for review and consideration of formal charges.

Last week, Chanute police and KBI officers conducted another search at the same apartment complex that resulted in 16 arrests, but officers have not confirmed if the two searches are related to the same investigation, Operation Street Sweeper.
