Bond increased for accused drug dealer

October 23, 2012

At a preliminary hearing Monday, the bond was increased for an accused Bonner Springs drug dealer.

Lt. Rick Schubert of the Bonner Springs police said the bond for Bruce T. Tyner, 44, was raised from $15,000 to $40,000, as Tyner will be charged with three counts of possession of methamphetamines and distribution of the drugs within 1,000 feet of a school.

Tyner was arrested in May on a warrant for distribution. Schubert previously stated that in order to protect the identity of some of the police department's sources and witnesses, he could not identify the school near which Tyner was selling methamphetamines.

Tyner had not previously posted bond and has been in jail since his arrest, Schubert said.
