LPD Conduct Local Drug Bust-Arrest Rhett Lucero


Lamar Police

On Monday, 3/23/2015, at approximately 4:00 PM, officers of the Lamar Police Department executed a search warrant at 1701 S. 7th Street. Over the last three months officers have conducted an investigation of marijuana sales from the residence. During the investigation, officers received numerous tips from the community and information from the Geary County Kansas Sheriff’s Office to obtain the search warrant.

Officers seized over a pound of marijuana and marijuana concentrate, multiple items of paraphernalia which included scales, packaging items and cash in small denominations from the residence. Additional charges are pending upon completion of the investigation.

While recreational use of marijuana is now legal in the state of Colorado, laws and regulations do still apply to the growing and distribution of the drug either for personal use or commercial sales. On June 10, 2013, the City of Lamar passed Ordinance Number 1182 prohibiting the sale of marijuana within the city limits.  Marijuana still remains a controlled substance at the federal level.

Officers also served an arrest warrant for Rhett Lucero (36) for the sales of Marijuana (>12oz<2.5lbs). Lucero was transported to the Prowers County Jail and held on a $15,000 bond.
