A Hollister man is free on 10-thousand dollars bond, pending his next court appearance, following a drug bust in Taney County.
The sheriff says in a news release that 46 year old John Menezes was arrested when deputies served a search warrant at a house in the 3-hundred block of Sassafras Court, just outside the city limits of Hollister.
The sheriff says investigators allegedly found several prescription medications and methamphetamine. Menezes is charged with 2 counts of felony possession of a controlled substance.
The news release says a separate search warrant was served in the 4-thousand block of Oakwood Lane in Merriam Woods. Deputies there allegedly found cocaine paraphernalia and marijuana. The sheriff’s department has sent a report to the Prosecuting Attorney for the filing of formal charges. No names have been released in that case.
