A search of a local residence by the Cape Girardeau police's Special Response Team led to the arrest of an individual Monday afternoon after drugs and a firearm were found.
At 12:58 p.m., the team executed a search warrant at 127 S. Lorimier St., Apt. 1, and found small amounts of marijuana, crack cocaine and a handgun leading to the arrest of one suspect, Sgt. Rick Schmidt said. No charges have yet been filed. The search was the result of an investigation by the SEMO Drug Task Force.
Police officials said using the Special Response Team is not uncommon when the presence of firearms is suspected.
