Riley County Police say three people have been taken into custody on Pottawatomie County District Court warrants in connection to the suspected fentanyl-related death of an 18-year-old man at a Manhattan hotel March 11.
Those arrested include 19-year-old Noah Baker, of Junction City; 21-year-old McKaine Farr, of Wamego; and 22-year-old Shawn Samuelson, of Manhattan. Each have been charged with distribution of a controlled substance, causing death. The Junction City Police Department and Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrests. Samuelson was already confined on unrelated charges. Baker was arrested Thursday, as KMAN previously reported.
Police say a subsequent search at Farr’s location led to the seizure of suspected fentanyl.
Baker is being held on a $25,000 bond. Farr is being held with no bond. Samuelson remains jailed on a detainer.
