Burlington Junction Man Faces Marijuana Charges

A Burlington Junction man is facing marijuana charges in Worth County Circuit Court. Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper Brad Maudlin filed a probable cause statement alleging that on April 18th, he observed a vehicle being driven by Trevor Meyer of Burlington Junction traveling on 46 near 180th Street at a high rate of speed. Maudlin stated in his affidavit that he detected an odor of marijuana, performed a search of his vehicle, and found a bag of marijuana. Maudlin also stated that Meyer admitted to being around friends who had smoked and that he had gotten the bag from a friend. Meyer was also ticketed for driving 68 miles per hour.

Based on these allegations, Prosecuting Attorney David Baird filed charges on May 17th. All charges are merely allegations; defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
