In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Jan. 30, the Sedalia Police Department S.T.I.N.G. Unit served a search warrant at 1436 S. Carr and three suspects were arrested on various drug related charges.
The Sedalia Police Department received tips from the neighborhood that suspicious activity was going on at the location, according to Detective Larry Parham.
Suspects Jordan Webb, age 19, Chiron Web, age 22, and 18 year old Sarandon Staten were arrested at the scene.
Jordan Webb was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing of a controlled substance within 2,000 feet of a school and illegal possession of a firearm.
Jordan Webb’s bail was set at $300,000.
Chiron Webb was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and manufacturing a controlled substance within 2,000 feet of a school.
His bond was set a $350,000. While he was charged with less offenses, his bond was set higher than the other suspects due to his previous arrest and conviction record.
Suspect Sarandon Staten was arrested at the scene for possession of a controlled substance.
His bond was set at $5,000.
A fourth suspect was in the residence at the time of the serving of the warrant, but was let go due to lack of evidence of their involvement.
According to Detective Parham, the suspects had only been living at the residence for two weeks before the search warrant was served.
“The neighborhood saw something that looked strange and said they didn’t want that on their block,” Parham said.
All of the suspects have been arraigned and are currently awaiting trial.
There was no official total on the amount of marijuana that was seized during the serving of the search warrant, but according to Detective Parham it was close to one pound of the narcotic.
Members of the Sedalia Police Department S.T.I.N.G. Unit, including Detectives Larry Parham, David Smith, Ryan Reed and Kevin Klein were on hand during the serving of the search warrant.
“We had a handful of officers that were available. We want at least a few uniformed officers upfront to be seen,” Detective Parham said.
The Sedalia Police Department were thankful of the dedication of the citizens living in that neighborhood.
“We appreciate them calling. We can’t be everywhere. We are a three man unit. It’s these tips that get us started with an investigation,” Detective Parham said.
