On April 27, West Ford, 40, St. Ann, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class B felony possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and class C felony possession of a controlled substance. Bond is set at $20,000 cash or surety.

The charges stem from an investigation the previous day on Highway 13 southbound near CC Highway when a St. Clair County deputy conducted a traffic stop Ford was a passenger in. During the investigation Ford was found to be in possession of heroin. He was taken into custody pending the formal charge. Members of the Mid Missouri Multi Jurisdiction Drug Task Force assisted with the investigation.
