Kahoka Man Arrested During Drug Bust

According to court documents, on Monday, December 7, 2015 a search warrant was served at a Clark County residence, 337 East Main Street in Kahoka, MO, at approximately 5:30 p.m.

According to Clark County Sheriff Paul Gaudette, the search warrant was executed by the CCSO and members of the North Missouri Drug Task Force.

According to the probable cause statement (police report) filed in the case, an occupant of the residence, Robert J. Wilson, 34, was taken into custody during the search.

Law enforcement officials found amphetamine, less than 35 grams of marijuana, a green leafy substance and numerous drug paraphernalia items including glassware and a “tooter straw” (straw used to snort substances) in the residence. Items were found in a “secret compartment” in the living area, inside of a barrel in a back room and in the kitchen. Amphetamine was also found in a truck belonging to Wilson.

Wilson has been charged with one Class C felony count of possession of amphetamine, one misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia by Clark County Prosecutor Holly Conger. He is being held in the custody of the Clark County Jail on a $35,000 cash only bond.

Wilson made an initial court appearance in Clark County Associate Court on Wednesday, December 9, 2015. He is scheduled to appear again before Clark County Associate Judge Rick Roberts for a preliminary hearing on December 17, 2015.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation. Robert J. Wilson is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
