(KAIR)--An Atchison woman is in custody, arrested in connection with a drug raid that happened last month.

Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, in a release, said 41-year-old Erin Russell was taken into custody Wednesday, apprehended on a District Court warrant issued after drugs seized during the raid were determined to allegedly belong to her. “We did locate methamphetamine, cocaine, some drug paraphernalia,” Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie told MSC News.

Russell was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.

Following her arrest, she was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

Her arrest followed the execution of a search warrant on July 19 at a residence located in the 400 block of Atchison Street.

At the time of the raid, 41-year-old Landon Bain, Sr. was arrested on drug related charges.

A second drug related arrest came about an hour after Russell was apprehended, this one following a traffic stop on U.S. Highway 59, near 274th Road.

Laurie said it was there, around 6:00 Wednesday evening, that a vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation.

The driver, 30-year-old Megan Lynch, was found to be driving on a suspended license, and was taken into custody for the violation. During the arrest, it's alleged that methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia were located.

Lynch faces charges including possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, no drug tax stamp, and driving while suspended.

Following her arrest, Lynch was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
