Search Warrant Leads Large Cache of Contraband-Being Sold to Minors

On Sunday afternoon while many were watching the Super Bowl the Stanton County Sheriff’s office executed a search warrant at a Stanton residence near the High School that yielded more than 400 Vape cartridges and related Tobacco products along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia.  The search warrant was a result of an investigation by the Sheriff’s office into the unlawful sale of vape products to middle school students in Stanton.  Last week two 17 year old males were arrested at the Stanton High School for Contributing to the Delinquency of Minors and Unlawful sale of Tobacco products to minors.  The investigation revealed a large quantity of vapes were being stored at the Stanton residence, and were recovered during the search. Additional arrests are possible as the investigation continues into the unlawful activity.
