Two Garden City men were arrested on Saturday — one on allegations of burglary, theft and criminal damage and another on allegations of possession of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen property.
On Saturday, detectives from the Garden City Police Department received information that Jose Miguel Muniz, 30, transient, was located in a room at the Dusty Trail Inn, 2808 N. Taylor Ave., and was in possession of illegal drugs and stolen property.
After obtaining a search warrant for his hotel room, at 11:46 p.m. members of the GCPD S.W.A.T. Team served the warrant. No one was found inside the room.
While the room was being searched, Jeronimo "Junior" Alarcon, 19, 305 Campus Drive, Garden City, arrived at the location and began speaking with detectives. During their conversation, detectives found evidence in the room that linked Alarcon to a recent burglary reported to the Finney County Sheriff's Office.
Alarcon was arrested on allegations of burglary, theft and criminal damage and transferred into the custody of Finney County Sheriff's deputies. During the subsequent search, detectives found several items that had previously been reported to the Finney County Sheriff's Office as stolen, trace amounts of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia consistent with the distribution of illegal drugs and hydrocodone pills.
During the investigation, officers were able to contact Muniz and convince him to turn himself in at the motel.
When Muniz arrived, he was arrested and lodged in the Finney County
Jail on allegations of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of hydrocodone with the intent to distribute and possession of stolen property.
