Kansas man faces 31 charges related to meth labs

HUTCHINSON, Kan. | A 42-year-old Hutchinson man faces 31 counts stemming from the discovery of two active meth labs.

Bennie Cullison is being held in the Reno County jail on $200,000 bond.

The Hutchinson News reports that Cullison was arrested last week after Reno County sheriff's officers reported finding two meth labs in a garage on the property.

He appeared in court Wednesday to hear the charges against him. It was not clear whether he had a lawyer.

The most serious charge against Cullison is manufacturing methamphetamine, which carries a potential sentence of up to 17 years in prison. He's also charged with several other drug counts and 21 counts of criminal possession of a firearm.
