Three men were arrested on drug charges Sunday evening by McPherson County Sheriff's deputies and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper.

Law enforcement was called out to the area of Eighth Avenue and Kiowa Road on a report of suspicious activity around 5:15 p.m. Sunday. They then made contact with a pair of vehicles at Limstone Road and Antelope Trail, where they arrested Michael Lara of Wichita on charges of distribution of marijuana, transporting an open container and no tax stamp. He was booked into the McPherson County Jail on a bond of $12,750.

Two Wichita men were also arrested on conspiracy to distribute charges. Both were released after posting bail.
