Leavenworth man Eric Dangerfield convicted in moped drug deal case

LEAVENWORTH, Kan - A Kansas jury found a man guilty this week in a drug case that started when he was pulled over on a moped.

Eric Dangerfield, 38, of Leavenworth, was convicted in Leavenworth County of possession of cocaine with intent to sell and driving on a suspended license.

Dangerfield was pulled over on Sept. 2, 2011 in Leavenworth when an officer noticed he was not wearing appropriate eyewear.

Other Leavenworth officers had seen the driver doing "suspicious behavior" that resembled a person distributing drugs, Leavenworth County Prosecutor Todd Thompson said Tuesday in a statement.

An officer searched Dangerfield, finding four individually-wrapped bags of an off-white rock-like substance (later determined to be cocaine) and more than $2,800.

Sentencing is set for April 19.
