Three Arrested After Drugs Found in Shed

Reports of vehicles being shot with a pellet gun this morning led police to make three arrests after discovering drugs inside a shed.

On December 22nd around 10:30 p.m. patrol officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to the 1500 block of Southwest Parkway in reference to vehicles that had been shot by what appeared to be a pellet gun.

Officers were able to determine that the shots came from a residential address in the 4700 block of Marsha Lane.  When officers went to investigate, they located several subjects hiding in a shed.  Upon getting a consent to search they located 19-year-old Kagan Baisden, 19-year-old Jacob Benson, and 27-year-old Zachary Gelwicks inside the shed along with a stolen handgun, over $1,700 in cash, 14.9 ounces of marijuana, less than one gram of methamphetamine, various prescription pills, scales, baggies and other drug paraphernalia, as well as a pellet rifle.

The weapons, cash, narcotics and drug paraphernalia were seized.  All three suspects were arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 1 (Drug Free Zone), Possession of a Dangerous Drug, Possession of Marijuana, and Theft of a Firearm.  Other charges are pending further investigation due to the damage to vehicles caused by the pellet gun.
