A Nevada, Mo resident has been charged after a Sheriff’s Office raid on a home Tuesday afternoon, recovering suspected methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia. Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said one person was taken into custody after his office served a search warrant at a residence on 1200 Rd southwest of Nevada as part of an ongoing investigation. Mosher said the suspect has been identified as 19-year-old John H Chappell. Charges were issued early Wednesday charging Chappell with Possession of a Controlled Substance (D Felony). Chappell is being held in the Vernon County Jail on a bond of $10,000 cash only.
