WINDSOR, Mo.- According to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, two men were taken into custody on multiple drug allegations yesterday in Windsor.
The press release indicates Robert Summers, 32, of Windsor and Travis Hankins, 30 of Leeton, were both arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal use of a weapon. Both Summers and Hankins had probation violation warrants issued against them.
Just before 10:00 a.m., a deputy was conducting a traffic stop on Circle Drive in Windsor when he noticed the passenger in the vehicle also threw out an object from the vehicle just prior to the stop. Preliminary investigations revealed that the object thrown from the vehicle contained almost a pound of a white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine.
The deputy allegedly found a loaded handgun and several items of drug paraphernalia during the arrest of Summers and Hankins. Also over $5,500 in cash was taken from the two as evidence.
The street value of the methamphetamine seized is estimated to be $45,000.
Sheriff Oberkrom said in a statement, “This is a significant disruption of the methamphetamine drug business in the Windsor community and we will continue to do our part to battle the drug trafficking in Henry County.”
Summers and Hankins remain in custody at the Henry County Jail pending the filing of formal charges.
