Numerous Arrests Made Tuesday, Including Fugitive Carlos Blake Gandy

Law enforcement in Cherokee County kept busy on Tuesday, making numerous arrests, including one that required them to take to the water after receiving information that Carlos Blake Gandy had been frequenting an island on Spring River, near Riverton.  Additional information included allegations that illegal drug activity was also occurring on the island.

Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Investigators along with Game Wardens with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism arrived on the island just before 3:00 p.m.  Gandy was not located at that time, however officers made contact with Lorne “Bub” Futch, 46, who had been living at a campsite on the island.  During the course of their investigation, officers discovered suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. 

Futch was arrested and transported to the Cherokee County Jail.  After posting $5,000.00 bond on Wednesday morning, he was released.

Later on Tuesday, just before 9:30 p.m., Galena Police Officers and Cherokee County Sheriff’s Deputies followed up on a tip that Gandy was at a residence located just outside of Galena City limits.  While at that residence, officers observed Gandy attempt to flee out of a window, which is when he was apprehended.

Gandy was transported to the Cherokee County Jail, where he is being held without bond on numerous warrants including Aggravated Robbery, Robbery, Aggravated Burglary, Violating Probation, Drug Possession and warrants for failure to appear in court, along with several other warrants issued in the State of Missouri.

Also arrested at the scene, on allegations of Aiding a Felon, was 51 year-old Janie Treadway, of the home.  Bond on Treadway has been set at $2,500.00.
