WaKeeney School Board President Faces Drug Charges

KSAL StaffJanuary 3, 2014

Authorities say a school board president for a western Kansas district has been arrested on drug-related charges.

Trego County Sheriff Richard Hanks tells television stations KAKE and KWCH that John Reeder was taken into custody Thursday at his WaKeeney home. He is charged with possession of marijuana, criminal use of a firearm and two counts of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a school.

Reeder is listed as president of the Board of Education for Trego County schools.

A Trego County jail staffer tells The Associated Press that Reeder remains in custody. No attorney is listed for him in jail records.

KWCH reports that Superintendent George Griffith says there is no statement from the school district at this time.
