Bootheel DTF Arrests 9 Following Raid

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) - Nine suspected drug offenders are in custody today following a raid at a residence in Caruthersville last week, and the incident remains under investigation.

Agents with the Bootheel Drug Task Force served a search warrant at 7 p.m. Thursday at a residence at 1101 Franklin Street.  There, authorities found "a substantial amount of crack cocaine, marijuana and ecstacy pills."  Several guns and ammunition were also seized at the residence, and officers also located several items which had been reported stolen in burglaries dating back to January.

The names of the suspects have not yet been released, though they have been described as eight black males and one black female.  Federal charges are expected to be filed as a result of the amount of drugs and weapons seized in the raid, and the investigation is continuing.
