Kennett Man Accused of Drug Trafficking Makes First Court Appearance

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - A Kennett man charged with drug trafficking made his first court appearance Tuesday. He asked for more time to find a lawyer.

19-year-old Devan M. Tipler was granted an additional week to seek council by Judge John C. Speilman.

Tipler, who was arrested on January 16th, was arrested after multiple law enforcement agencies, including the F.B.I., executed a search warrant at his home on 710 North Everett Street.

Authorities reportedly uncovered a large amount of crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana with an estimated street value of $4,000. Officers also reported finding an undisclosed amount of cash and drug paraphernalia.

Tipler faces a class A felony of trafficking drugs in the second degree, in addition to possession of more than six grams of cocaine base (crack cocaine). He was already serving probation from a previous drug conviction, according Assistant Dunklin County Prosecuting Attorney Jonce Chidister.
