Two people were arrested in separate instances while deputies and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force attempted to locate a fugitive in southern Gage County.
Gage County deputies assisted U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force to locate a fugitive with an active warrant.
Authorities learned the individual with an active warrant was associated with Jeremy D. Mick, 35, and contacted him at 116 W. Broad St. in Blue Springs.
A female answered the door and allowed authorities inside the residence, court documents state.
Mick said the fugitive was not there and authorities contacted the homeowner who granted permission to search the rest of the residence.
Court documents state that once they had permission, Mick quickly moved to the stairs and ignored orders to stop.
He was detained, and authorities searched the upstairs. Court documents state there was a large piece of glass on which suspected methamphetamine was sitting, in addition to two glass smoking devices.
Clear baggies and a scale were also found. Mick was also found to have drug paraphernalia in a front pocket.
While being escorted out of the residence, Mick allegedly kicked a U.S. Marshal. He was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and assaulting an officer.
Another arrest stemmed from a traffic stop earlier this month. Deputies pulled over a vehicle driven by Ashley Bartels, 19, and a passenger left the vehicle and fled on foot, evading authorities. The traffic stop occurred on Dec. 22.
Court documents state the deputy was informed that the U.S. Marshals questioned Bartels about the fugitive on Dec. 12, and she did not disclose this information to the deputy during the stop.
She was arrested for being an accessory to a class 3A felony.
