Moniteau County man taken into custody for alleged meth deliveryPosted on 18 February 2018 at 8:20pm
MONITEAU COUNTY - A California man was taken into custody after deputies reported finding a "substantial amount" of meth inside his car.
Deputies arrested Zacharey Martin, 27, after a K-9 officer alerted them to what they said they later found.
Moniteau County Sheriff Tony Wheatley said deputies stopped the car just outside of California on Highway 87 and requested a K-9 officer after they talked to Martin.
Wheatley said in a statement the flow of drugs in and out of Moniteau County has "slowed considerably."
"We will continue to take an aggressive approach to stop these individuals. My job is to protect our citizens and shield them and our children from this type of crime," Wheatley said.
Martin's bond was set at $50,000, according to the Moniteau County Sheriff's Office.
