KSAL Staff - September 1, 2016 12:08 pm

The Drug Task Force makes one arrest and is seeking another suspect after searching a Salina home.

The I-135/I-70 Drug Task Force made three arrests on Tuesday after a controlled drug buy was made by an informant at a house located at 1920 Larson.

Police learned of drug activity from concerned citizens in the area that led to the investigation and arrest of 48-year-old Matthew J. Carlson, Mandy M. Rodgers, 37 and John S. Windell, all of Salina.

Police Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that officers found over 29 grams of marijuana, 13.9 grams of crack cocaine, four ecstasy pills plus digital scales and multiple meth pipes in the residence.

All three are facing drug possession charges while Windell and Carlson have also been charged with distributing drugs within 1,000 feet of school.

South Middle School is located nearby.
