Gage County authorities wrapped up a several months investigation, arresting four people Friday on drug related charges.
A tip as to meth distribution led to a controlled buy in May, and another followed, leading officers to the four including Charles Burr, Aaron Burr, Thomas Sailors, and Ashley Bartels. Charles Burr and Bartels attempted to flee an arrest attempt in Blue Springs, but their vehicle became high centered on a stump as they drove through a yard. Sailors and Aaron Burr were then subsequently arrested in connection with the investigation.
Bond ranged from $7,500 for Ashley Bartels on possession, distribution, and conspiracy charges, $10,000 for Aaron Burr, arrested on aiding and abetting distribution, and conspiracy. Thomas Sailors faces $20,000 bond on similar charges, and $100,000 bond was set for Charles Burr, who also faces charges of avoiding arrest, tampering with evidence, and resisting arrest.
