STE. GENEVIEVE, MO (KFVS) -

The past couple of days have been very busy for officers, according to the police department in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

Police say on Nov. 7, officers conducted a search of a home and found scales and marijuana.

Later during a search after a traffic stop, police say a  syringe with residue was found. That led to the search at a home where 96 pill capsules containing heroin, 12 used syringes, and a number of pieces of paraphernalia containing heroin were found.

After another traffic stop the same day,  baggies of methamphetamine bagged for resale were seized.

That search led officers to search a home finding paraphernalia including a scale. Police say all contained methamphetamine.

Ste. Genevieve police say they are working very hard to get rid of drugs in the community.
