Three In Custody Following Baxter Springs Raid

Just after 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 13th, 2016, law enforcement with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and Baxter Springs Police Department executed a search warrant on a Baxter Springs home.

After investigators with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office were tipped off about suspected drug activity at 2026 East Avenue, they began their investigation and surveillance of the house, which resulted in the issuance of the warrant.

While searching the home, investigators discovered suspected methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Three suspects were arrested at the scene and transported to the Cherokee County Jail.
