Four people accused of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school were arrested in Junction City Thursday after police served a search warrant.

In addition to the distribution charges, 33-year-old Samantha Goodno, 27-year-old Brandi Leonard and 32-year-old Preston Cressller — all of JC — were charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Cressller faces an additional charge of theft of services. 51-year-old Gregory Westfall of Concordia faces all the aforementioned charges as well as possession with intent to distribute marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school.

Police say the Junction City-Geary County Drug Operations Group made the arrests in the 100 block of South Webster Street following an investigation that spanned two months.
