Task Force: Man Was Making Heroin in Basement

KSAL StaffSeptember 26, 2013
The Drug Task Force makes one arrest and is seeking another suspect after searching a Salina home.

Police make three arrests after curb-side drug deals are made in a Salina neighborhood.

According to Drug Task Force Commander Lt Jim Norton, police received several tips about suspected drug activity at 823 Gypsum.

Monday, police used a search warrant to enter the residence and arrested 52-year-old Garry D. Jelken and 62-year-old Marilyn R. Jelken on charges that could include possession of controlled substances.

Lt. Norton tells KSAL News, the investigation then led officers to a house at 1026 N. 12th. Police used a search warrant on Tuesday and arrested 53-year-old Dewayne Wolfe after finding him in the basement with drug paraphernalia and some 50 to 60 prescription pain killers.

The Task Force alleges that Wolfe has been converting morphine pills into heroin for sale. Officers also confiscated a number of used hypodermic needles.

Lt. Norton says the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible.
