"My team conducted a secure search warrant. These things can be extremely dangerous; we do not know what we are going to encounter when entering someone's home," said Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore. "Every member followed their assigned task and the mission was a total success. Each and every time we get drugs off the streets we are keeping them out of the hands of children.

"Methamphetamine is a highly addictive drug, and a danger to the user, and society. It is imperative that we get this drug off the streets and out of our loved ones lives. Cooking meth is a very dangerous thing, many of the components are caustic and explosive. We are happy to have these drugs off the streets."
