On Tuesday at approximately 9:15 a.m., Cole County SWAT, Jefferson City Police Department SWAT, Missouri Highway Patrol SWAT and the Missouri National Guard Counterdrug Task Force, served four search warrants in Cole County.
These search warrants were the result of an on-going investigation by the MUSTANG drug task force, Cole County Sheriff’s Department and the Jefferson City Police Department.
The three search warrants were served at Twin Bridges Bridge Trailer park, located at 5605 Heritage Hwy, at lots 5, 7, and 32.
The fourth search warrant was at 4238 Crim Lane.
While executing the search warrant, two pitbulls became very aggressive.
Since the teams executing the search warrant carry less lethal munitions, both animals were dealt with, without permanent damage to the animals.
A taser and a bean bag round were utilized.
A total of seven subjects were taken into custody without incident.
They were transported to the Cole County Jail pending charges.
The charges for these individuals include possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and a couple of the subjects had active warrants.
One juvenile was located and, due to the circumstances, was turned over to Missouri's Division of Family Services.
