USA: ‘ DEPUTY SHERIFF OF JOHNSON COUNTY HELPS BRING DOWN SYNTHETIC DRUG RING ‘

#AceFinanceNews – USA:Feb.12: Tireless investigative work by a Johnson County deputy sheriff was the key to bringing down a drug trafficking ring in Olathe that sold more than $16 million worth of designer drugs in just 14 months, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Deputy Christopher Farkes received the U.S. Attorney’s 2015 Guardian of Justice Award Tuesday. Farkes led a three-year investigation that resulted in federal indictments against 13 individuals including the owners of an Olathe-based business, Tracy Picanso and Roy Ehrett.

“Chris Farkes is very intelligent, with great intuition and a great passion for law enforcement,” Grissom said. “He was born to do the work he does.”
