Two In Jail Following Scammon Raid

   Phillip Michael Clark II          Deb Hibdon


At approximately 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 17th, 2013, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the Southeast Kansas Drug Enforcement Task Force executed a search warrant at 616 North Keith Street in Scammon.

At the time of the raid, officers discovered chemicals commonly used in the unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, including cold tablets being prepared to extract the ephedrine component – which is a key step in the manufacturing process- along with suspected finished product of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Arrested were Phillip Michael Clark II, 43, and 25 year-old Deb Hibdon, both of the home.

In addition, a 7-month old child was taken into police protective custody.

Clark and Hibdon were both arrested and transported to the Cherokee County Jail on allegations of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Precursor Chemicals with Intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

On Friday, the Court set bond on both suspects at $100,000.00 each.

Formal charges are expected to be filed next week.

All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
