Raids result in two arrests; more pending


Two people were arrested on drug charges Tuesday after a raid on a residence in the 500 block of east McCarty street in Jefferson City.

The raid was conducted by the Jefferson City Police Department SWAT Team and the MUSTANG Drug Task Force, which is comprised of eight mid-Missouri law enforcement agencies.

During the investigation, officers seized suspected heroin, marijuana, two stolen handguns, ammunition, and a digital scale.

Arrested were Lakeisha A. Collins on drug and firearms charges, and Tyrone T. Nickerson on two outstanding drug charges.

Also yesterday, the two agencies raided another house in the 600 block of McCarty, where they discovered 50 grams of what is described as high grade marijuana. No residents were at home, and authorities say charges are pending on them.
