Hearing waived in house-hitting
A Leavenworth man who drove his pickup into a Lansing home in early June has waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Leavenworth County District Court.
Arraignment for Thomas Brooks, 26, was set for Aug. 8.
Brooks was charged with possession of opiates or narcotic drugs, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, reckless driving, speeding and failure to wear a seat belt after he drove his pickup truck into the Holiday Lane home of Jim Driscoll on the evening of June 10.
Brooks was arrested at the scene by Lansing Police and released June 12 on bail of $8,550.
White powder found in the truck at the scene was determined by a KBI lab to be cocaine, Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman said earlier this week.
