Kennett home raid turns up about $4,000 in illegal drugs

Friday, January 16, 2009

KENNETT, Mo. -- An early morning raid of a home on North Everett Street in Kennett led to one arrest and approximately $4,000 worth of controlled substances and paraphernalia being confiscated today.

At around midnight on Friday morning, officers with the Kennett Police Department's Strategic Response Team, along with agents from the Bootheel Drug Task Force, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the Pemiscot County K-9 Unit, executed a search warrant at 710 North Everett St. During their search, authorities reportedly uncovered a large amount of crack cocaine, powered cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, paraphernalia, and an undisclosed amount of cash.

A 19-year-old man was arrested at the home in connection with the drugs.

According to Lt. Tim Trowbridge, of the Bootheel Drug Task Force, the suspect will face charges of possession of controlled substances with the intent to distribute. Trowbridge also said the suspect is facing possible federal charges.

What's wrong with this picture?

" a large amount of crack cocaine, powered cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, paraphernalia, and an undisclosed amount of cash" = about $4,000!?!

Once upon a time a 'large amount' of all those drugs would have been worth at least $40,000. We know the economy is bad but didn't know it had pushed the price of illegal drugs so low.
