October 8, 2021:

The Barton County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has filed charges against Howard Alan Morris as the result of an investigation into a suspicious person report. Chief Deputy Justin Ersham was investigating a report of a suspicious person at a residence in the 600 block of NE 90th Lane when he located a vehicle belonging to Morris. 

The vehicle was parked on private property where it did not belong. Ersham, along with the landowner, searched the property and found Morris laying on the ground trying to conceal himself. Ersham seized a quantity of methamphetamine from Morris.

Morris, 48 years old, of Lamar, Missouri, is charged with delivery of a controlled substance. Morris is currently being held in the Cedar County Jail without bond awaiting arraignment.
