Kirkwood Deputy Mayor Pleads Guilty to Drug Charges
KIRKWOOD - The deputy mayor of the St. Louis County town Kirkwood will be supervised by a drug court for the next 15 months after pleading guilty to two counts of drug possession and one count of attempted drug possession. Thomas Noonan was caught in a police sting in November. Authorities say he provided cash to a woman to illegally purchase the drug oxycodone, a painkiller. If Noonan successfully completes the program which is aimed at ending his addiction, his criminal record will be erased. The 42-year-old woman involved in the case was also arrested. Her case is pending.
