Three in custody after search in Moniteau County
MONITEAU COUNTY - Three people are in custody after they reportedly tried to run away from law enforcement Friday.
In a news release, the Moniteau County Sheriff's Office said deputies were tipped off about a car parked in a wooded area on Lake Imhoff Road, near California.
Deputies found the car, along with a woman sitting in the back seat. They learned two additional people fled into the woods on foot, the release said.
Deputies then set up a perimeter and tracked the suspects with K-9 officers. They found one suspect at a nearby home and the other person in the same area a short time later, officials said.
Deputies said they found methamphetamine on one of the suspects, and took all three people into custody.
