Neosho men arrested on receiving stolen property, meth-related charge after Jasper traffic stop

(From the Jasper Police Department)

Recovered Stolen Property and Meth Related Drug Paraphernalia Arrest

On Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 at 11:46 am, a Jasper officer stopped a green 2003 Nissan X-Terra near the intersection of 4th St. and Mercer St., in reference to a traffic violation.

Contact was made with the occupants, Christopher Drum and Gary Drum, both of Neosho. The officer knows Christopher to be in possession of drugs. Gary came back with a probation and parole hit for burglary. Gary stated he had recently been released from prison.

Jasper County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Deputy George Datum and his K-9 “paw”tner, Holi, arrived on scene to assist. 

A positive indication from K-9 Holi gave officers probable cause to search the vehicle. During the search, several Harley Davidson collectibles were found, as well as other collectibles, ipods, Army veteran collectibles and pocket watches, i-tune cards, a credit card with a females name, 2 guns and other items were found. It was suspected that the items were possibly stolen and/or taken during a burglary. Meth related drug paraphernalia was also found.

After paperwork with a possible victim was found in the property, the victim was contacted and was able to identify the property as his. He valued the property around $7,500. The property was returned to the victim.

After investigation, it was determined the property was stolen from a residence in Newton County.
Special thanks to K-9 Holi and Deputy Datum for their assistance. Because they responded and because of their training and experience, law enforcement was able to recover a high dollar amount of property that was stolen.
Please Note..... Both persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Also thank you to Jasco dispatchers for helping with the case and getting things lined out with other agencies.
