On June 03, 2020, the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office was provided information and intelligence of illegal activity at a Bourbon County residence.
Deputies applied for and was granted a search warrant for a residence and its surrounding property for illegal drug possession and possible cultivation.
This warrant was issued out of the Bourbon County District Court.
Recovered from the search warrant were several vegetation plants and several mason jars full of a green leafy substance.
The items were field tested during the search and it was confirmed that all seized property was positive for marijuana.
Additional testing will be done through the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) labs.
Christopher J Pruitt (38) and Rachel M Pruitt (48) of Fort Scott, were taken into custody, processed, and charged with the following crimes: distribution of marijuana, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.
They are currently being held in the Bourbon County Law Enforcement Center with no bond at the present time.
BOTH INDIVUDALS ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW.
