Two arrested in connection with drug distribution house in Holton

Two Holton residents have been arrested after a search warrant was issued at an alleged “illegal drug distribution house” near a Holton school, according to Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant just after 7 p.m. Tuesday night at 907 Pennsylvania Ave. as a result of a police investigation.

Robin Alison Deo, 26, was arrested at the scene at that time.

“Some of the items seized at the scene were items believed to be LSD, narcotics, marijuana, a firearm, U.S. currency and drug paraphernalia,” Morse said.

Deo was arrested on charges of distribution of marijuana within 1,000 foot of a school, felony possession of a hallucinogenic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to distribute, possession of opiates, felony criminal possession of a firearm, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful use of a communication device in the commission of felony drug distribution.

Deo was also arrested on three charges of endangering a child. Bond is pending at this time.

On Wednesday evening, the sheriff’s office arrested Jordan Christopher Sumner, 28, in connection with the search warrant that was served on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Sumner was taken into custody on felony charges of illegal drug possession and distribution within 1,000 feet of a Holton school. Additional charges and bond are pending at this time. 

Additional charges may be issued and further arrests can be expected in this case, Morse said. The Holton Police Department assisted in serving the search warrant.
