  • A jury trial is scheduled to begin Monday for a defendant arrested as part of a massive methamphetamine raid in 2012.
    Steven Dale Faulkner, 55, Tecumseh, is scheduled to appear for trial before District Judge John Canavan in Pottawatomie County District Court.
    Faulkner is charged with four counts of aggravated trafficking, conspiracy, unlawful use of a communication facility, acquiring or possession of drug proceeds, distribution of controlled dangerous substance, and unlawful use of surveillance equipment.
    He was arrested following a four-month undercover investigation into methamphetamine trafficking in this area.
    That undercover case, which included numerous agencies, led to a daylong raid June 27, 2012, with more than 125 law enforcement officers serving simultaneous warrants around Shawnee as police confiscated cash and methamphetamine.
    Faulkner’s case, part of a two-week jury term, is the first on Monday’s docket.
    Watch for updates.
