July 20th, 2018 by News Tribune in Local News

As part of his probation, a Jefferson City man will spend 10 weekends in the Cole County Jail for pleading guilty to selling methamphetamine to numerous people in June 2017.

Cole County Presiding Judge Pat Joyce placed Darby Hart, 39, on five years of supervised probation. He was charged with second-degree drug trafficking and unlawful use of a weapon.

Members of the Mustang Drug Task Force and the JCPD Swat Team executed a narcotics search warrant at Hart's residence in the 600 block of Woodlander Drive, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

Prior to authorities' arrival, Hart was spotted leaving his residence on a motorcycle and was stopped. He was found to be in possession of 10 grams of methamphetamine and $1,400 in cash.

At his residence, authorities found 38 grams of meth, numerous packaging materials, a digital scale, two loaded handguns and a rifle.
