KENNETT, MO (KFVS) - Three people were arrested last week in connection to an ongoing drug investigation in southeast Missouri.
On March 16, 2016, police in Kennett were following up on leads in a drug investigation when they performed a traffic stop on a car on Varner and N. Baldwin streets.
During the stop, a large undisclosed amount of methamphetamine was found in a hidden compartment in the vehicle, along with several bags of K2.
The street value of the recovered methamphetamine was estimated at $21,000.
Police arrested Gary King, of Hayti, Mo., and Emanuel Martinez, of Braggadocio, Mo.
Both were placed in custody at the Dunklin County Jail where they remain on a $150,000 bond.
Later during the investigation police in Kennett followed up with a search warrant for a local home.
The search warrant led to the arrest of Tory Cole for an undisclosed amount of K2.
He is being charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Police say the investigation is especially important due to the recent overdoses of K2.
Police are continuing this investigation with more arrest and search warrants expected soon.
