Arrest warrant issued for Clinton man on Felony Drug Charge

 John Mead
On Nov. 9, a St. Clair County warrant was issued for John Mead, 47, Clinton, charging him with class C felony possession of a controlled substance. Bond is set at $15,000 cash or surety.

The charge stems from an investigation on Oct. 16 when a St. Clair County deputy was called to assist Missouri Department of Conservation Agent Zeb Jordan who had made contact with Mead at the King's Prairie Conservation Area on Highway T. 

A partially smoked marijuana cigarette was noticed lying in the front seat of Mead’s vehicle. During the investigation 36 grams of marijuana were located in Mead’s vehicle. The marijuana was divided into five glass containers inside a black bag under the driver's seat. A wooden container with marijuana residue was also located.
