A Jefferson City man was arrested in Moniteau County this weekend on multiple warrants.
According to Moniteau County Sheriff's Department reports, a deputy on routine patrol Sunday saw a man walking down the middle of a street in California. As the deputy passed, the man attempted to hide his face and continued walking, acting in an allegedly suspicious manner. The deputy turned around and made contact with the man, who gave a false name and date of birth. The deputy told the man he didn't believe him and said he was taking him to the Moniteau County Jail.
The man, Kurt Catron, 32, then told the deputy he was in possession of drugs. The deputy retrieved a "substantial" amount of methamphetamine from Catron along with needles and other drug paraphernalia.
Catron was taken into custody and had his fingerprints entered into a computer system, which indicated he had multiple warrants for his arrest. Those included possession of a controlled substance charges out of Callaway County as well as tampering with a motor vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia charges out of Jefferson City.
