Methamphetamine, Heroin, and Pills Leads to Multiple Arrests in Vernon County

According to Officials with the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office, members of the investigations unit and CNET Drug Task Force executed a search warrant early Wednesday morning at a hotel on the 2300 block of E. Marvel Rd in Nevada, MO. 

Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said detectives were able to develop information regarding the distribution of large quantities of illegal narcotics coming from that location.

Four individuals were detained during the execution of the warrant, where approximately 3 ounces of suspected methamphetamine, approximately 20 grams of suspected heroin and 256 pills that were determined to be schedule II and IV drugs were seized. Other suspected illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia, as well as a homemade explosive device were also located during the search. “I am glad we were able to successfully and safely take a substantial number of drugs off our streets that otherwise would have been sold throughout Vernon County,” said Mosher.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Courts issued warrants for the suspects, who have been identified as 53-year-old Harry Foreman, of Nevada, and 33-year-old Cheyenne Highley, of Nevada.

Both Foreman and Highley have been charged with:
Trafficking Drugs-2nd Degree
7 counts of Delivery of a Controlled Substance
Possession of a Controlled Substance
Keeping or Maintaining a Public Nuisance

Foreman is being held in the Vernon County Jail on a $500,000 cash only bond.

Highley is being held in the Vernon County Jail on a $250,000 cash only bond.

Additional charges may be filed on the other two suspects pending lab results.
