— Jefferson County sheriff's officers arrested six people during an early morning raid Tuesday at a rural Meriden residence.

Authorities also confiscated what was thought to be marijuana and methamphetamine and recovered some property stolen several weeks ago in a burglary at The Dam Store north of Perry, said Sheriff Roy Dunnaway.

Arrested in the raid were five men from rural Meriden and a woman who listed a Burlingame address.

The six were arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary, felony theft, no drug tax stamp and possession of deer meat without a permit. One man also was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault and battery.

They were booked into the Jefferson County Jail and no bond has been set, Dunnaway said, adding that they were expected to make a first appearance in Jefferson County District Court today.

Dunnaway said his office had received tips from a confidential informant and the Shawnee County sheriff's office. The Kansas Highway Patrol provided a dog trained in narcotics detection, and the State Department of Wildlife and Parks also assisted in the raid, he said.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation had assisted with the investigation, he said.
