Thousands in cash, over 3 pounds of marijuana lead to arrest
SEDALIA - Police arrested a suspect Thursday morning after a drug bust revealed more than three pounds of marijuana and several thousand dollars in cash.
Around 5:30 a.m. Thursday, the Sedalia Police Department said detectives, officers and a K9 unit carried out a search warrant at 314 East 13th St. The report said officers arrested 30-year-old Sedalia resident Jason Viebrock after an investigation at the home found multiple bags of marijuana with a total weight around three and a quarter pounds, packaging supplies and more than $3,000 in cash.
In addition to seizing the marijuana, police said they seized the cash because they think it might be profit from drug sales. Police said they also seized the suspect's car because they think Viebrock used it to "deliver marijuana throughout the Sedalia area."
Police said the home is about 875 feet from Smith Cotton Junior High School and about 200 feet from the Katy Trail State Park.
Viebrock faces several charges including possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution of marijuana within 2,000 feet of a school.
As of Thursday, Viebrock was in Pettis County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
