A Leavenworth man has been convicted of three drug charges.

A jury convicted Byron Brooks, 33, Leavenworth, Tuesday in Leavenworth County District Court of possession with intent to distribute between 3.5 and 100 grams of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia in the form of a scale and no drug tax stamp, according to a news release from County Attorney Todd Thompson.

The conviction stems from an incident that occurred on March 25, 2017. Law enforcement officers were dispatched to an address on Dakota Street in Leavenworth in connection to a possible injury to Brooks’ son.

Based on contact with people inside of the residence, law enforcement officers obtained a search warrant. During the search, they found a bag with a pill bottle, digital scale and cash and other items. Brooks' name was on the pill bottle. Inside of the bottle, found about 50 grams of cocaine. A detective with narcotics experience testified that the value of the cocaine was between $1,500 and $2,000.

Post trial motions in the case are set for March 14.
