Narcotics Arrest in Pittsburg


A Pittsburg man was arrested Tuesday on multiple charges including possession of methamphetamines.


An officer with the Pittsburg Police Department noticed a man and woman arguing. Upon further investigation, the officer was informed that there was a warrant for his arrest in Crawford County for probation violations. The man was identified as 28-year-old Kaleb Gudgen of Pittsburg.


Officers attempted to detain Gudgen, but he resisted as he reached his hand in his left pocket which had methamphetamines inside. Police eventually had to use a taser, but he was still resistant. Several minutes later, officers were able to arrest Gudgen and release the drugs from his hand.


Gudgen was taken to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office for felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, felony interference with law enforcement, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and the probation violation warrant without bond.


Gudgen was previously sentenced to the Kansas Department of Corrections for an aggravated robbery incident that occurred in Pittsburg in July of 2014. Gudgen had also been arrested earlier this month for multiple charges but was released the following day after posting a $5000.00 bond.
