Manufacture/Cultivation of a Controlled Substance Arrest
On Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 at 11:42 am, I arrived at 407 East Jackson St., Jasper, Missouri, in reference to a drug investigation.
Contact was made with the residents at the house.
A search of the residence was conducted. A marijuana grow operation was found. During the investigation, it was confirmed that drugs were being sold from the residence.
Bethany Wenger of Jasper and Tyler Cates of Jasper are both facing charges for manufacturing/distribution/delivery/production of a controlled substance as well as other drug charges.
This residence was very active with persons of the criminal element coming from other area cities to purchase drugs from inside this residence. For those who will more than likely comment and downplay the use of marijuana.... Remember what happens at houses that become known as “drug houses”....violent crime, property crimes such as stealing and subjects who are involved in other drugs such as methamphetamine, pills, etc. occur at these places. Think about that for a second.
