Alderman arrested after drug raid

An Auxvasse alderman was arrested for distribution of Meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Callaway County Sheriff TMs Department and the MUSTANG Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 30-year-old George Trey Baumgartner TMs home in the 500 block of Elm St. in Auxvasse Friday.

The warrant was a result of an on-going investigation for the use and possession of narcotics, and sales of a controlled substance to an undercover law enforcement officer.

The South Ward Alderman was booked at the Callaway County jail on $15,000 bond.

Baumgartner was elected in April 2011.
