Labette county traffic stop leads to meth bust

News

A late night traffic stops leads Labette county Sheriff’s deputies to two pounds of meth and hundreds of dollars in cash.  

Labette County Sheriff Darren Eichinger says John Goodbar, 51, of Parsons was arrested around 11 PM Thursday when deputies stopped him for running a stop sign in rural Labette county. A K9 unit on scene indicated the presences of narcotics in the vehicle shortly after the stop. Sheriff Eichinger says a search of the car uncovered two pounds of meth, with a street value of roughly $90,000, along with cash and drug paraphernalia. He says while the stop and arrest did happen in a rural part of the county, every community will benefit from this arrest.

“We just took two pounds of methamphetamine off the street,” Sheriff Eichinger says. “It benefits not only the citizens of Labette county, but Parsons as well.”

Sheriff Eichinger says this arrest also underscores the importance of the recently formed drug task force between the Labette County Sheriff’s Office, the Labette County Attorney and the Parsons Police Department.
