A Fulton man was taken into custody on March 31 after the Fulton Police Department and the MUSTANG Task Force executed a narcotics warrant at his residence.
According to an FPD press release, a search of Joey D. Laswell’s home yielded a quantity of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Laswell, 40, was arrested and transported to the Callaway County Jail pending a $4,500 bond for possession of a controlled substance and $500 for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Lt. Andre Cook, head of detectives for the Fulton police, said the warrant was issued as part of one of the department’s narcotics investigations, noting “(Laswell) has been arrested before.”
A Missouri Case.net search of Laswell yielded a string of other charges, including guilty pleas for a DWI in 2000, failure to register as a sex offender in April 2007 and driving while revoked in January 2011.
According to the press release, the investigation is ongoing.
