Federal indictments for two local men
10/09/2018

(KAIR)--An Atchison man is charged with federal drug crimes stemming from a June raid in Atchison.

According to the office of U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister, 37-year-old Jason Valles was charged last week with intent to distribute methamphetamine, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking, and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a user of controlled substances.

Valles was arrested June 14 after the Atchison County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at 1022 North 8th Street, in Atchison.

A second man, also arrested during a Sheriff's investigation, is indicted in connection with federal drug crimes.

Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie told MSC News 50-year-old Leavenworth resident Alton Johnson is connected to alleged drug and weapons-related crimes that led to federal charges.

Both Valles and Johnson were inmates at the Atchison County Jail at the time of their arrests on the federal indictments.
