Drug Arrests in Fulton
The investigation was conducted by the Mustang Task Force, which includes officers from the Callaway, Boone and Cole county sheriff's departments as well as the Jefferson City, Columbia and Boonville police departments, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Those arrested on drug charges are from Fulton, and officials say making big drug busts like this are necessary.
"It's important that we be proactive at all times in order to try to diminish the use of drugs, illegal drugs," said Fulton Mayor Robert Craghead.
The last drug raid was in April 2006. The Fulton Police Department says the size of this drug bust is not unusual.They hope to make more arrests in the next 24 hours.
