WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The execution of a search warrant led to the discover of about 4,000 fentanyl pills and a 20-year-old Wichita man’s arrest. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation confirmed the arrest of Michael Hadley as a result of an investigation in which the KBI partnered with the McPherson County Sheriff’s Office, the McPherson Police Department and the Wichita Police Department.

The investigation into fentanyl distribution led to a search warrant that officers executed Tuesday night in the 1600 block of North Oliver, in northeast Wichita.

“As a result of the investigation and search approximately 4,000 fentanyl pills, marijuana, crack cocaine and six firearms were discovered. Also located at the residence was drug distribution paraphernalia, drug use paraphernalia and approximately $5,400 in cash,” the KBI reported.

Officers arrested Hadley for distribution of fentanyl, criminal possession of a firearm, possession of marijuana, possession of distribution paraphernalia, and possession of use paraphernalia.
