RENO COUNTY— A Kansas man arrested a week ago on drug and other charges was scheduled for court Wednesday for the formal reading of charges but was a no-show.

Lucas Mobley 34, and his father Murray Mobley, 60, Hutchinson,  are both accused of pointing a gun at the officers. In both cases, they were ordered to drop the weapons after repeated warnings — both finally did.

On December 6, Police saw Lucas Mobley, 34, near a shed in the 2400 block of Broadacres in South Hutchinson. That led to a search of the shed and officers found a modified shotgun and other gun parts, as well as drugs, including 4.5 grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale and drug paraphernalia.

Police arrested Murray Mobley for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer and felony interference. He made a first appearance on the charges against him Tuesday.

Police arrested Lucas Mobley for criminal use of a firearm, the shotgun with a barrel under 18 inches, possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine, personal use drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm by someone addicted to meth and an unlawful user of a controlled substance.

Magistrate Judge Cheryl Allen issued a warrant for Mobley’s arrest with a $50,000 bond.
