A Shawnee man arrested by Shawnee police after a neighbor dispute earlier this month now faces three felony charges — including trafficking in illegal drugs — after police found more than 200 grams of methamphetamine.

Colton J. Hammons, 28, is charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with the trafficking count, as well as assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm after conviction of a felony.

In the trafficking count, he is accused of possessing more than 200 grams of methamphetamine between Aug. 1 and 2.

In the assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charge, he is accused of assaulting his neighbor with a .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol by hitting him in the face and head with the pistol, the filing alleges.

In the possession of a firearm count, he is accused of knowingly having in his possession and within his control the .380 caliber Smith and Wesson pistol and a .22 caliber revolver located in the home where he resided after being convicted of knowingly concealing stolen property in a 2010 Pottawatomie County case, among other felony cases.

Reports that were released by Shawnee police indicated a dispute between neighbors led to his arrest, followed by a search warrant, with both guns and methamphetamine found.

On Aug. 2, police responded to a call involving assault with a deadly weapon in the 200 block of North Pesotum.

There, a Shawnee man reported that his neighbor, Hammons, accused him of stealing a box containing money from drug proceeds. The neighbor told officers he didn't take the money, but he helped Hammons look for the box.

The neighbor indicated Hammons allegedly put a gun to his head and threatened to shoot him, the reports shows, before he allegedly struck him in the face with the gun.

Police were told Hammons allegedly had about one pound of meth and a rifle in his home, the report shows, so officers went to question Hammons. He was later arrested in the case and a search warrant commenced the same day, where police found a pistol, revolver and a rifle, reports show, as well as a large bag of a “crystal shard like substance.”

His next court date and an attorney of record are not yet listed with the court case.

If convicted, he could face 12 years to life in the trafficking count and up to 20 years to life in the assault charge.
