Suspected meth agent receives six-year sentence


LYNDON—Charles L. Miller, 24, Baxter Springs, KS, was sentenced to serve 77 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections for convictions on possession of drug precursors intended to be used to manufacture methamphetamine, and fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement.

The defendant entered pleas to those charges on April 6. The charges stemmed from a high-speed police chase started by the Kansas Highway Patrol and later involving the Osage County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas Bureau of Investigations. The chase ended with Miller and a female passenger, who is facing similar charges, abandoning the vehicle at a rural residence just north of Melvern Lake and fleeing on foot.

A manhunt that involved all three agencies resulted in their apprehension and arrest. During the chase, the suspects threw items from the vehicle including chemicals used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Some of the chemicals struck the pursuing patrol car.

The defendant remains in the Osage County Jail awaiting transportation to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
