A Knob Noster man was arrested after the Pettis Co. Sheriff's Office and Mid-Missouri Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force began an investigation early this month into large amounts of Ecstasy (aka "Molly" or "MDMA") being transported to Pettis County.

Authorities say the investigation began on April 3. Brandon Beasley was reportedly found to be in possession of the drugs and was arrested for delivery of a controlled substance and second degree trafficking. On April 4, a $75,000 cash or surety warrant was issued for Beasley.
