Saline Co. grand jury indictee located in Gallatin…along with some other things
GALLATIN CO.—A host of agents from every imaginable law enforcement entity has converged on Gallatin County as of yesterday, 08.18.10, brought in due to some interesting discoveries when local officials went to make an arrest on a Saline County grand jury indictee.
John Robinson, 56, of Eldorado, was indicted by a Saline County grand jury on Aug. 9 on charges of Unlawful Delivery of a Controlled Substance within 1,000 feet of a church and Unlawful Delivery of Controlled Substance. Local authorities were unable to find Robinson immediately and held release of his name pending the execution of his arrest warrant.
On the morning of Wednesday, Aug. 18, Gallatin County authorities received a tip that Robinson was hanging out with a Gallatin guy, Brian Mann, at Mann’s trailer reportedly on Eagle Creek Road not far from the Gallatin/Saline county line. Robinson’s information was sent to Gallatin County’s sheriff, and Gallatin authorities headed out to the residence. There, they did find Robinson, and took him into custody.
However, they also found something else—an alleged amount of dope, and a weapon in plain view. Since Robinson is a felon and has been to federal prison according to authorities, they decided they’d better get a warrant. Mann was also taken into custody and when the warrant was obtained, Gallatin authorities began a search of the trailer.
Shortly thereafter, they came across what was described as detonation cord, and a possible hand grenade.
At that point, local authorities backed out of the trailer and immediately notified the Secretary of State Police Bomb Squad, along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
It’s been those agents who have been swarming the county yesterday and today, and as far as our official sources have confirmed, they are still in the area following up on leads and trying to figure out just how extensive this latest possible bomb-making situation is. It may very well be like what we experienced in Edwards six years ago when meth-makers were perfecting their ‘personal safety’ skills as well as their recreational pharmaceutical recipes…but you can never tell.
More in the print version, on stands in less than a week if we can get back to the office and start writing again!
