Two men with ties to Atchison County were arrested as the result of an 8:30 p.m. traffic stop Friday, June 12 in Hoyt according to a report from Chief Dan Wentling, of the Hoyt Police Department.

Two Atchison men, Benjamin W. Ervin and Jason Jay Thomas landed jail stays earlier this week as the result of their unrelated arrests for dangerous drugs in their possession.

All persons booked into jail by the Atchison Police Department (APD) or Atchison County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO), or released pending judicial proceedings, are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
