Sheriff's Office K-9 finds drugs hidden in floor, two arrested


Two people have been taken into custody after a search warrant was executed at a residence on E. Stockade Rd in rural Nevada, MO on Friday afternoon. According to Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher, an ongoing investigation of narcotics led to the search warrant and seizure of suspected methamphetamine's. While searching the residence, the Sheriff's Office K9 alerted to the odor of narcotics in the floor of the residence. It was then discovered that part of the flooring was covering a hole that contained the suspected methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia. Mosher said, "they tried their best to hide their drugs, but it was not quite good enough for the K9". The suspects have been identified as 41-year-old Amanda Peery, of Nevada and 37-year-old John Peery, of Nevada. On Saturday morning, warrants were issued by the Courts charging Amanda and John with Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
Both Amanda and John are being held in the Vernon County Jail on a $100,000 cash only bond.
