Officers took thousand of dollars worth of synthetic drugs off the street Monday morning in Columbia, Missouri, and the effects of the raid are felt right here in the Heartland.
Kevin Earl Bay was arrested on an outstanding Stoddard County warrant for distribution of analogue controlled substances. He is charged with two counts of delivery of an analog controlled substance and six counts of delivering of an imitation controlled substance.
His bond was set at $250,000.
About 100 firearms and a large amount of substances believed to be synthetic cannabinoids were seized. At the request of the DEA, more than $630,000 in cash and a large amount of precious metals were seized by the Boone County Sheriff's Department.
The plan for this raid goes back to July, when the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department seized thousands of dollars worth of synthetic drugs from convenience stores around the county.
