  • The Macon Police Department made a drug bust on Monday, November 18, ending with the arrest of two individuals.
    "What happened here was our officers received a complaint about suspicious activity and the officers took it upon themselves to go out and investigate this," said Macon Police Captain Jeff Brown. "And they did a really good job."
    After officers gained enough information to obtain a search warrant, they executed said warrant in the 900 block of Sunset Drive at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Monday with the assistance of the Macon County Sheriff's Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol and North Missouri Task Force.
    During the search warrant, police seized a large amount of marijuana from inside the residence along with drug paraphernalia including items indicating distribution. As a result, police applied for and obtained arrest warrants on two suspects and summonsed a third suspect. A 20-year old black male of Macon was arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The suspect, whose name was not released, was transported to the Macon Police Department for processing and was later released on summons with a Division II court date. Police arrested Errol T. Powe Jr, 23 of Macon, for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and keeping/maintaining a public nuisance. Powe was transported to the Macon Police Department for processing and was later placed on 24-hour hold pending formal charges at the Macon County Jail. Charges were filed against Powe with bond being set at $20,000 cash only bond. Police also arrested David J. Horehlad, 23 of Macon, for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, receiving stolen property and keeping/maintaining a public nuisance. Horehlad was transported to the Macon Police Department for processing and was later placed on 24-hour hold pending formal charges at the Macon County Jail. Charges were later filed against Horehlad with bond being set at $9,000 cash only bond.
    "This goes to show people have to get involved with their community," said Brown. "Citizens calling in with concern—that is why we are here, that's how we do our business."
