Five Charged in Missouri Meth Conspiracy
A federal indictment accuses five western Missouri residents of taking part in a $2.6 million conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
The U.S. Attorney's office says the indictment was unsealed Tuesday after several defendants were arrested and made initial court appearances.
The indictment alleges that all five conspired to distribute more than 50 kilograms of meth from January 2010 until last week. Investigators said the scheme brought in $2.6 million.
Thirty-seven-year-old Sabrena Lynn Morgan and 38-year-old Elgin Eugene Dothage are also accused of using their home in Kearney as the distribution center. The other defendants are from Lathrop, Grandview and Kansas City.
The defendants did not have lawyers Tuesday.
