Lexington, Neb. — A man wanted on an active Phillips County, Kansas warrant was arrested outside a Lexington convenience store. Lexington Police Captain Paul Schwarz says officers responded to the convenience store at approximately 5:30 a.m. Tuesday on a report of “a suspicious vehicle parked outside Casey’s,” on south Highway 283.
A man inside the vehicle refused to get out and resisted arrest. Officers removed him from the vehicle and placed him under arrest.
Lexington Police found suspected drugs and paraphernalia inside the vehicle. The man was identified as 40 year old John Warburton of Holbrook, Nebraska. He was booked into the Dawson County Jail on the warrant as well as charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance; Resisting Arrest and Obstructing a Peace Officer.
A spokesperson for the Phillips County, Kansas Sheriff’s Office declined to give the reason for the warrant, saying they don’t generally reveal what a warrant is for if the person named in the warrant is not in their custody. Once the subject is in their custody, they will release the information.
