      Officers seize $10 million in drugs

      WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- Waynesville police say a security check at a closed business led to the seizure of more than $10 million in cocaine and methamphetamine.

      Waynesville police Lt. Gary Brankel says police received a call Tuesday night reporting suspicious activity at the closed Whitmore Farms west of Waynesville.

      An officer doing a security check saw several vehicles at the site. Police say a subsequent search led to the seizure of 89 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of $4.1 million, and 99.6 pounds of cocaine valued at $6.1 million.

      Brankel says the suspects fled the scene and no one was arrested.
