HAYS, Kan. (AP) — Four people are behind bars following a drug bust in a northwest Kansas county where officers reported seizing more than 2.5 pounds of crystal meth. KAYS-AM reports that officers from Ellis County and the cities of Hays and Ellis executed search warrants Thursday at four homes in the two communities. The warrants were part of a continuing investigation of drug trafficking in the area. Authorities did not place a value on the methamphetamine, but the drug can sell for several thousand dollars a pound. Three men and one woman were booked into the Ellis County jail. Officials expect charges to be filed later.
