Teen Jailed In $1.75 Million Meth Case

KSAL StaffJanuary 1, 2015

An 18-year-old is jailed after authorities in east-central Kansas confiscated seven pounds of methamphetamine, one of the largest meth busts ever in the region.

Antonio Orona was arrested Monday for possession of meth with intent to distribute. He is jailed on $300,000 bond.

McPherson County Sheriff Larry Powell says it is the largest drug bust he has ever been part of. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says the meth had a street value of $1.75 million.

McPherson County deputies responded to a call about a vehicle driving without headlights and tailgating. A 2008 Chevrolet Silverado was stopped on Interstate 135 near Moundridge.

The sheriff’s department says deputies found seven packages of meth.
