[ARCHIVED] Five in Custody for drugs & guns in Cole County, two in Osage County.

        On 12/21/2017 at 08:46 am, members of the MUSTANG Drug Task Force, Cole County Sheriff’s Department, and the Jefferson City Police Department SWAT Team served a narcotic search warrant at 1400 Westview Drive. During the investigation, MUSTANG Officers arrested five subjects. A total of 129 grams of methamphetamine were recovered along with marijuana and prescription pills.

The following subjects were arrested on scene and are formally charged in the Cole County Jail:

          -James Morris – Trafficking in Drugs (Meth), $50,000 bond.
          -Kathryn Wilson – Trafficking in Drugs (Meth), $50,000 bond.
          -Tyler Roman Strope – Trafficking in Drugs and Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Meth), $50,000 bond.
          -James Earl Whitney was arrested on scene for two outstanding warrants and charges sent to the prosecutor for Possession of a Stolen Firearm
          -A 15 year old male was transported to the Prenger Center for Delivery of Controlled Substance (Meth)

Information obtained from this investigation, led MUSTANG Drug Task Force Officers to work with members of the MID Mo Drug Task Force and were able to obtain two other search warrants that were served late last night in Osage County. As a result of those search warrants more methamphetamine was seized along with several arrests.

          The investigation continues.
