On Wednesday, the Wichita Police Department announced they had arrested 37-year-old Super Car Guy Aaron Wirtz after officers executed a narcotics warrant at his residence.
Narcotics Warrant Against Aaron Wirtz
Wirtz was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of heroin with intent to sell, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of hallucinogenic with intent to sell, possession of nonnarcotics with intent to sell, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to a Facebook post from the WPD, officers served a narcotics search warrant on Wirtz’s residence after receiving information drugs were being sold out of the home. On Tuesday at 12:45 p.m., WPD officers executed the warrant at the residence in the 200 block of North Summitlawn. Wirtz was said to be arrested without incident. Inside his home, officers say they found a pound of methamphetamine, two ounces of heroin, narcotic pills, a mushroom grow operation, drug paraphernalia and two handguns.
Released Without Prejudice
By Wednesday, Wirtz was no longer in custody. According to Sedgwick County Jail records his charges were dismissed “without prejudice” (WOP). If a case is dismissed with prejudice it means those charges cannot be brought back up. Since Writz’s charges were dismissed without prejudice the District Attorney can file charges within the statute of limitations. It is common practice for a DA to WOP charges as an investigation is conducted and more evidence is built in the case.
