More than ¼ pound of meth seized in joint operation Monday evening
Charges have been filed against a Kansas resident after a lengthy multi-agency investigation. Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said his office along with the Nevada Police Department, the Kansas Bureau of Investigations, and the CNET Drug Task Force have been conducting an investigation into the distribution of illegal narcotics that led to the arrest of a suspect and the seizure of suspected methamphetamines. Mosher said a team of investigators, surveillance personnel and the VCSO Special Response team executed the arrest in a joint operation Monday evening and located the largest drug seizure by the Sheriff’s Office this year. “We recovered more than ¼ pound of suspected methamphetamines that would have been distributed throughout our county and other communities.”
Warrants were issued Tuesday afternoon for the suspect, who has been identified as 32-year-old Jordan Vender, of Bronson, KS. Vender has been charged with felony counts that include:
Delivery of a Controlled Substance
Possession of a Controlled Substance
Unlawful Possession of a Firearm
Unlawful Use of a Weapon
Vender is currently being held in the Vernon County Jail on a $250,000 cash only bond.
