WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A Wichita man in federal court pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm during a drug traffic offense, the United State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed.

The federal office said an investigation into fentanyl trafficking led to 37-year-old Grant Lubbers’ arrest in April 2021, in Andover.

“Using a search warrant, agents searched Lubbers’ vehicle and found a backpack containing approximately 3,000 pills that later tested positive for fentanyl, $22,000 in chase, and a firearm,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

The Justice Department said the DEA is investigating the case with Lubbers’ sentencing scheduled for Nov. 29.
