Drug bust made in city

October 6, 2006

About 7:50 p.m. Thursday, Leavenworth County Sheriff's officers, with cooperation from Lansing and Leavenworth police departments, served a search warrant for narcotics and seized 48 grams of crack cocaine and cash from a Lansing residence, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

A 22-year-old male was arrested at an apartment in the 200 block of Fairlane and later released. Two other residents in the house were arrested on outstanding Leavenworth County warrants. Angela Gordine, 23, was wanted for failure to appear on a possession of cocaine charge; George Stell, 23, was wanted for aggravated assault. Two minor children at the apartment were taken to friends of the family, the news release said.

The cocaine was worth about $4,800 in street value, and officers seized less than $1,000 in money, said Sheriff's spokesman Leonard Ayres.

The case has been turned over to Leavenworth County Attorney's Office.
