Chaffee man arrested for marijuana, child endangerment

Monday, July 28, 2008

A Chaffee, Mo., man was arrested Thursday on drug charges following the execution of a search warrant at a Chaffee public housing unit.

Oriedo T. Lumas, 31, was charged Friday with possession of under 35 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child, according to a press release from the Scott County Sheriff’s Department.

"The residents of these concentrated housing projects are often preyed upon by drug dealers and users who hide their illicit activity, through the use of fear and intimidation," sheriff Rick Walter said. "It is our goal in this program to eliminate that threat for these residents."

Lumas set his bond set at $2,500 and was released.
