An early morning search warrant on August 18th resulted in four being arrested for drugs.
The suspects- three men and one woman – were arrested following an investigation by the Scott County Sheriff Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit. There was evidence that indicated that there was marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine in the residence.
Each were charged with possession of a controlled substance and of drug paraphernalia. There were five vehicles seized. However, this very same residence had experienced a warrant several months prior that had resulted in arrests and seizures, so the police had visited this residence before.
At least now this quiet neighborhood is rid of these drug dealers until the next group decides to move in. As long as Scott City stays on their toes, residents can rest assured, they will take down any dealers who decide to plaque the area with their disease.
