SeMo Drug Investigation Leads to Arrest of Nebraska Murder Suspects

February 13, 2004 - Posted at 11:24 a.m. CDT

 

SIKESTON, MO - Drug investigators in southeast Missouri check into the backgrounds of two suspected marijuana-sellers and find that they are wanted on tandem warrants in a Nebraska killing.

Sikeston police say they discovered that Quan Lowery and Antonio Parr are sought by Nebraska authorities in the 1999 slaying of a Phoenix resident killed in Omaha.

Lowery and Parr are living in Sikeston.  Shortly after hearing of the Nebraska warrants, Sikeston police got search warrants for the residences where the men were alleged to be staying.  The men later were arrested during vehicle stops.

Authorities say they seized marijuana, packed for distribution.

The two men await extradition proceedings.  No bond is set on the Nebraska warrants.
