ST. ROBERT, Mo. (Nov. 29, 2008) — Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King is seeking to file numerous drug-related charges following a drug bust on Highway Y north of St. Robert.

“Everything went very well,” King said.

Shortly after 2 p.m. on Saturday, a convoy of sheriff’s patrol cars and state patrol vehicles, including officers from the Lake Area Narcotics Task Force and the Pulaski County Emergency Response Team, stopped at 21125 Highway Y and arrested three men and one women, most of whom are from the local area. One person remained unidentified as of early Saturday evening, King said.

“The warrant followed a brief investigation involving narcotics activity,” King said. “As a result of the search, a small quantity of a controlled substance believed to be heroin, narcotic paraphernalia and possible stolen property were seized.”

The front door was barricaded with an axe so the sheriff’s department emergency response team members weren’t able to get in that door but were able to enter another door in the residence about 2:22 p.m.

No names have been released pending filing of charges, King said, and nobody was injured during the raid.

“The suspects are being held on 24-hour hold. We have until roughly 2:30 p.m. tomorrow so I would hope that we will be ready to seek charges tomorrow with the prosecutor by this time,” King said. “(The drug tip) came up just a few hours before the investigation. We were able to get in there so we hit it immediately, but we’ve got a lot more work to do before we can start naming names and filing charges.”

The major charges are expected to focus on possession of narcotics with additional charges likely. Numerous items of personal property were found in the residence that may be stolen, King said.

“Probably we will be able to make a case for manufacturing and distributing,” King said. “I don’t know yet about the stolen property; we’ll have to do some digging.”
