A woman known for making meth was found staying at a house in Riverton, an apparent violation of the state’s offender registration law because the woman didn’t notify the sheriff of her new address.
47-year-old Angela Best, whose registered address is in Scammon, was arrested at the home on Friday along with two other men, including one who told the police Best wasn’t there before she was found hiding in the closet. The other man was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Sheriff David Groves tells News Talk KZRG “It’s important to our office to ensure compliance with the Kansas Offender Registration Act so members of our community can be aware of any publicly registered sex, drug or violent offenders, who move into their neighborhoods.”
Best is being held in the Cherokee County Jail on $60,000.00 bond.
51-year-old Gerald Wayne Myers, who told deputies Best was not at the location where she was found, was released on $2,500 bond. He was arrested for interfering with law enforcement.
34-year-old Matthew Mills was also arrested at the home on a warrant for battery. He posted $1,500 bond and was released.
