A Missouri professor is taking a deep breath of relief -- and potentially something else -- after his drug case was dismissed because of a procedural error. The man, a professor at Northwest Missouri State, had reportedly been targeted by law enforcement officials after he posted a threatening comment on a social media site. Officers were able to obtain a warrant to search the man's home, where they only found a pellet gun; however, they also found a marijuana-growing operation during that search. The man was taken into custody and hit with a series of drug charges after officers found the illegal plants at his home.
A 31-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man are in the Stone County, Missouri, jail after being arrested on charges of trafficking in drugs and distributing controlled substances. The pair was arrested on July 1 after deputies with the Stone County Sheriff’s Office responded to a Table Rock Lake resort. The initial call for law enforcement came because someone believed the two were allegedly using fake identification.
