A disturbance in Wauneta that spilled over from Christmas Day to Dec. 26 resulted in a transient being jailed at the Chase County Courthouse.

The Chase County Sheriff’s Department reported that 35-year old Stacy Layman, of no address, was first contacted the evening of Dec. 25 at a residence in Wauneta when he was reported as trespassing.

Layman was advised to leave the property.

At 6:45 a.m. Dec. 26 a call was again received concerning Layman at the same property after he got into an argument with the reporting party.

The sheriff’s department said two deputies contacted him and arrested him for disturbing the peace, trespassing, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and obstructing an officer.

As of last week he was still in jail pending bond of 10 percent of $25,000.


Cattle dead

The Chase County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the shooting of two cows, reported on Dec. 28.

A hired man discovered the two dead cows when he was checking cattle belonging to Stan and Shawn Jones at 320 Ave. north of the Chase-Dundy County line. They had been killed by gunshot, according to the sheriff’s department.

A spokesman said each cow, valued at $4,000, had a calf, which were not injured.
