Drug charges hold two in Sabetha

(KMZA)--A Sabetha man goes to jail on drug charges, and a search of his Sabetha residence leads to a second arrest.

Sabetha Chief of Police Robert Wahwasuck, in a news release, says 55-year-old Paul Forney was taken into custody around noon Thursday, arrested for two counts of distribution of narcotics, possession of narcotics, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Following his arrest, Wahwasuck says Forney's home was searched, leading to the arrest of 53-year-old Kelley Barker. She was taken into custody on a charge of possession of narcotics.

Following their arrests, both were booked into the Nemaha County Jail.

According to Wahwasuck, Forney has two prior convictions for distributing narcotics.

The arrests follow a near month long investigation by the Sabetha Police Department with assistance from the Nemaha County and Jackson County Sheriff's Offices.
