COLUMBIA - The Columbia Police Department and a full SWAT team served two search warrants Wednesday morning, arresting three Columbia family members.
According to CPD, Adrian Jaxon, Trevor Jaxon and Marc Jaxon were arrested as a result of a search warrant served at a home on Bushnell Drive. Adrian Jaxon, 21, was taken into custody for distribution/delivery/manufacture/produce meth. Travor Jaxon, 24, and Marc Jaxon, 52, were both arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and released on a signature summons.
Police said it served a narcotics and deadly weapons warrant at 2205 Bushnell Drive at about 7:55 a.m. The department said it was connected to another search warrant served on Ripley Street at about 8:30 a.m.
CPD Assistant Chief Jeremiah Hunter said the department sent a full SWAT team to execute the search warrant. A CPD K-9 unit was also on the scene. Police officers were searching cars in the driveway and bringing a K-9 dog around the Bushnell Drive property.
Broken windows, the SWAT vehicle and armed officers stood outside when KOMU 8 News was on scene. Officers did not have an estimated time of how much time it would take to completely search the property.
CPD said it served the second search warrant on Ripley street and recovered drug paraphernalia. Police said there was no arrest at the time of the warrant because the resident was not home.
