The Narcotics Division says “being pro-active in the pursuit and interdiction of narcotics often requires assets beyond our agency.” Sheriff Munsterman says “I would like to thank the Warrensburg Police Department, Johnson County Ambulance District, Holden Police Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Kansas City Police Department in their assistance with these investigations. Without the continued support and assistance from area law enforcement, these types of operations would not be possible. The Sheriff’s Office remains committed to keeping drugs off our streets and securing a clean future for our families and children.”
The investigations are ongoing and additional charges are pending.
