COOPER COUNTY, Mo. — Wednesday’s formal arraignment for an Illinois man accused of drug trafficking in Cooper County did not go well.

The bond agent for Chad Christopher Davis, 32, of Anna, Ill. appeared and asked for the release of his surety bond.

The court released the surety company from the bond and ordered Davis into custody.

The formal arraignment was waived by Davis and a motion for continuance in the case was granted.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled on March 12, at 1:00 p.m. The court did reset the $100,000 bond at $40,000 cash or surety.
