The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s office found drugs and $500 cash during a search Thursday afternoon south of Tonganoxie.

Officers served a narcotics search warrant about 12:50 p.m. Wednesday at the Paradise Mobile Home Park near 222nd Street and Kansas Avenue just east of U.S. Highway 24-40.

During the search, officers seized a field weight of a half-pound of marijuana in its natural dried state, along with several packages of THC-laced with gummy bear candies, THC cape cartridges, butane hash oil, THC shatter, digital scales and nearly $500 in money.

Suspects in the case are a 53-year-old Tonganoxie woman and two 19-year-old Tonganoxie men.

Undersheriff Jim Sherley said in a release that the case will be forwarded to the county attorney’s office when the investigation is finished.
