Hit-and-run accident leads to Russell County drug arrests


RUSSELL — Three individuals were arrested on drug-related allegations in Russell County early Friday morning as a result of a hit and run accident on Interstate 70.

At 3:25 a.m. Friday, a Russell County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the report of a hit-and-run on I-70 at mile marker 188. When the deputy arrived, he found a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro disabled in the eastbound lanes.

According to the sheriff’s office, the three occupants in the car said a semi struck the Camaro and fled the scene leaving the car disabled alongside the road.

Upon investigation, the sheriff’s deputy reported finding a large amount of marijuana in the Camaro.

Thrower McKissick and Myronta Jackson, both of Kansas City, Mo., and Tamar Brent, Denver, were all placed under arrest on suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brent was also arrested on suspicion of criminal possession of a firearm.

The sheriff’s department reported approximately $40,000 worth of marijuana was seized along with cash and a firearm.

    This must be false, weed people never commit crimes

    • alexander

      Aside from possession of weed their only crimes were being the victim of a hit and run, and possession of a firearm.

      Which of their crimes do you find more heinous? Being victimized in Kansas or possessing a firearm in Kansas?

        ROFL got to love how you word things. Being victimized?! He broke the law. Just because you don’t think weed should be illegal doesn’t matter. HE BROKE THE LAW. Now to reword your question correctly Which of their crimes do you find more heinous? Being charged with intent to distribute in Kansas, or criminal possession of a firearm in Kansas. But don’t worry, due to gun laws there is no way he could commit a crime with one. Cause you know signs and laws stop people from doing bad things all the time.

          “Because government knows best right?”

            Tell me more about my hypocrite mind?

          • passin_threw

            My guess is there was no semi at all and just a cooked up story after they wrecked on their own. Time will tell and then you can salt and pepper that crow

        • alexander

          Maybe we should let the courts decide if they broke the law?

          As of now they only stand accused by a corrupt entity.

          Maybe I’ve been watching too much Remington Steel, but a semi (that is never found) sideswipes these guys disabling their automobile, and then the cops swoop in to bust them? Sounds fishy to me.

          I guess we’ll see what a judge or a jury of their peers decides.

          • A_citizen_patriot

            Well yes the court will decide. Corrupt entity? If you think the sheriff is a corrupt entity I would hate to see what you think of congress. The IRS losing Lerner’s emails sounds fishy. A semi hitting a car and leaving the scene is very plausible.

            “The IRS losing Lerner’s emails sounds fishy.”

            Phony manufactured IRS scandal to distract from phony manufactured Benghazi ‘scandal’?

            Tell me why we shouldn’t bring the terrorist in charge of the Benghazi attack to justice? Why are the Republicans suddenly opposed to this?

            What phony manufactured scandal will you get bent out of shape about when the IRS scandal blows up in the GOP’s face and they need to distract you from it?

          • A_citizen_patriot

            Your starting to sound like a conspiracy theory nut.
