May 9, 2013


— The Kansas Bureau of investigation says 81 people were arrested on drug-related charges after a lengthy investigation by local and state authorities.

The KBI said in a news release Thursday that arrests were made Tuesday and Wednesday in and around Junction City, Manhattan, Grandview Plaza and Ogden. Many of the arrests involved conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine.

Investigators seized a variety of narcotics and 17 firearms. The KBI says several children were placed in protective custody after the arrests.

The 13-month investigation was conducted by the KBI, Geary County law enforcement, Junction City police and Grandview Plaza police. More than 180 members of law enforcement worked on the operation.

That's kind of a broad brush, don't you think?

Besides, I don't think too many of these folks from Thursday's selection of booking photos look like they'd be "military caliber," IMHO.

Neither do these folks posted on Friday.

Remember: All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Now that Manhattan has cleaned up some of the Crack problem; I would think that the prostitution ring will be next to be purged. Don't they go hand in hand or is it hand and mouth?

Lawrence detectives associated with the big weed bust last year that rounded up the locals and their Northern California partners nearly more than double their annual salary in over time alone. The result is no decrease in the availability of weed in this city. Seems like a huge waste of resources.

Does anyone know why these investigations take so long to complete?

I never liked it. Eventually I told everybody, “You’re wired, you’re fired.” If you’re going to play music, you better all be on the same drug. You can’t have a guy up here wailing away on cocaine while you’re laid back on a little pot. It just don’t work.
