Traffic Stop Leads to Felony Arrest


 On March 11, 2024, the Parsons Police Department Officer Connor Eichinger conducted a traffic stop that led to the arrest of an individual and the seizure of various illegal substances and paraphernalia.

At approximately 10:20 PM, Officer Eichinger observed a white Dodge Grand Caravan exiting a parking lot at 116 S 32nd St., Parsons and committed a traffic infraction.  After activating emergency equipment, Officer Eichinger conducted a traffic stop in the 300 block of South 32nd St. The driver, identified as Sir Christuffer Roeder, was found to have an expired Kansas driver's license and no current proof of insurance.

During the traffic stop, Labette County K9 Deputy Tim Gilliland arrived on the scene, and a subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of various illegal items. These items included methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a firearm. All contraband was seized, and Roeder was placed under arrest. Passenger Kirstin Monjay was also arrested and transported to the Parsons Police Department Lockup for processing.

Lieutenant Kyle Wiford praised the collaborative efforts of law enforcement officers involved in the arrest: "This incident highlights the dedication and vigilance of our officers in combating illegal activities within our community. We will continue to work tirelessly to rid our streets of illegal substances and hold those responsible accountable for their actions. With approximately 165 grams of methamphetamines, which equates to almost 6 ounces, we hope to see Mr. Roeder pay for his criminal activity. I commend Officer Eichinger for his diligence and hard work."

Sir Christuffer Roeder faces multiple charges from the Labette County Attorney's Office, including possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, driving without insurance, and driving with expired registration. Kirstin Monjay will also face charges related to the possession of marijuana.

Sir Christuffer Roeder, currently held at the Parsons Police Lockup on other on these charges also faces charges of Aggravated Kidnapping, Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Battery, and Aggravated Assault in Labette County for the role he played in a February incident.

This continues to be an on-going investigation and citizens are encouraged to "See It, Hear It, Report It." All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
