Kemph Gilmore Kinner PhotoOn June 24, 2014, at approximately 2136 hours, Sedalia Police Department Patrol Officers and Detectives with the Drug Enforcement Unit conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle near East 12th St. and S. Murray Ave. for a moving violation. During the course of the traffic stop, a passenger was discovered to be in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription pills, $1,117.00 cash and drug paraphernalia.

The cash is suspected to be profits of illegal drugs sales, as additional evidence indicated the suspect was a common supplier of methamphetamine and marijuana. The subject was arrested at the scene and transported to the Sedalia Police Department for questioning.

Further investigation revealed who the subject’s local supplier of marijuana was. The subject was arrested and transported to the Pettis County Jail, where he was placed on a 24-hour hold pending state charges of:

Aaron A. Kempf – 24 years old – Bond set at $350,000 cash/surety

-Possession Of A Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine, Marijuana and Alprazolam)

-Possession Of An Imitation Controlled Substance

-Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine

-Possession With Intent To Distribute Marijuana

-Possession With Intent To Distribute An Imitation Controlled Substance

-Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia

A search warrant was then obtained for the supplier’s residence at 1013 E. 10th St., and the warrant was executed at approximately 0212 hours by Patrol Officers and Detectives with the Drug Enforcement Unit. At the time of entry into the residence, contact was made with an adult male and female subject and five juveniles, ranging from 9 months old to 14 years old. The adults were taken into custody without incident.

A sniff of the residence was performed by the Narcotics K9, in which the K9 alerted in numerous places, and items of evidence were located. A search of the residence revealed over four pounds of marijuana, drug packaging supplies, drug paraphernalia, $1,707.00 cash (suspected profits of illegal drug sales) and additional evidence to indicate a male subject was distributing marijuana from the residence, which is within 2,000 feet of Washington Elementary.

It was determined the suspect’s 1998 Cadillac sedan was used to make drug deliveries; therefore it was seized as evidence due to being used in the distribution of illegal narcotics. The subjects admitted to smoking marijuana in the residence while the children were present, and marijuana was located in places which was easily accessible to the juveniles. The adults were arrested and later transported to the Pettis County Jail. The subjects were placed on 24-hour holds, pending state charges of:

Richard “Lee” Gilmore – 31 years old – Bond set at $300,000 cash/surety
