Hannibal Schools Get $26,000 Seized in Drug Raid
A June drug raid of a Hannibal residence winds up benefiting the Hannibal School District.
Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton announced Monday that, under Missouri’s Criminal Activity Forfeiture Act, the Hannibal School District will get a little over $26,000 that was seized earlier this year from the residence of James Tobias.
Along with the cash, the search of Tobias’ residence in June also uncovered several drugs and items related to drug sales, along with several guns.
Tobias pleaded guilty Monday to unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a weapon, distribution and possession of a controlled substance. Tobias was sentenced to 16 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.
The school district gets to use the money however it sees fit. Clayton says this is the largest amount of drug money ever forfeited in Marion County.
