Police arrest 1 in drug search

Jefferson City police said Thursday narcotics officers arrested one man after the SWAT team served a narcotics search warrant in the 700 block of Washington Street.

The warrant was issued after officers were told there were continuous narcotics sales from the residence, based on a MUSTANG Drug Task Force investigation.

No charges had been listed on Case.net, the state court system’s online information system, as of late Thursday. But police said they arrested Larry Shelton, 51, Jefferson City, for possession of marijuana, with the intent to distribute the drug.

Officers said they recovered approximately 1⁄4 pound of marijuana during the search, which began about 2 p.m. Thursday.

Police said no one was injured during the search warrant service.
