Traffic stop yields felony drug arrest

Josiah Heuermann
On Sept. 24, Josiah Heuermann, 20, Lee’s Summit, was arrested on a St. Clair County warrant charging him with class B felony distribution/ delivery/ manufacture/ produce a controlled substance and class C felony possession of a controlled substance. Bond is set at $50,000 cash or surety.

The charges stem from an investigation the previous day when a St. Clair County deputy was on patrol near Alexander's convenience store, Lowry City, and observed a vehicle driving excessively fast through the store's parking lot. 

The vehicle started to spin its tires and was skidding sideways while leaving the parking lot. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle and contact was made with Heuermann, who was driving the vehicle.

During the investigation several items were located in Heuermann’s possession including drug paraphernalia, several small clear plastic baggies some containing a white residue, broken pieces of a glass pipe with residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine, two cans of butane, digital scales, and multiple baggies containing an unknown white substance.
