A Parsons man made a first appearance Thursday on charges alleging he possessed with intent to distribute two drugs.
Brandon M. Kindrick, 31, 911 S. 16th St., is charged in Labette County District Court with distribution of 3.5 to 100 grams of methamphetamine, distribution of between 10 and 100 dosage units of hydrocodone, possession of meth, criminal possession of a firearm within three months of satisfying a sentence or being discharged from probation, all felonies, and possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor.
The complaint alleges the crimes occurred on Monday.
At 10:35 p.m. Monday, Parsons Police Department K-9 officer Christian Smith conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of North 10th Street. Smith saw three adults in the vehicle and recognized one of them as Kindrick, even though Kindrick allegedly took steps to conceal his identity. While on the stop, Labette County Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Adamson assisted. Adamson used his K-9, Memphis, who made an indication of illegal narcotics in the car. Officers arrested Kindrick.
A search of the vehicle revealed a backpack with illegal drugs and a firearm in it. The backpack was in the same location where Kindrick was sitting.
Kindrick made a first appearance Thursday. Judge Steven Stockard set a hearing for July 7. Kindrick remains jailed.
