A SWAT team raid leads to some controlled substances…and a fugitive. Authorities in Maries County found drugs, and three suspects, at a home on Highway 28 near Belle early Saturday morning. One of the people arrested was 29-year-old Donald Green of Belle. He was already violating his parole for drug charges, and was also a wanted suspect in at least four other places in Missouri. He had been running from the law for about a year-and-a-half.
Green, and 26-year-old Joseph Fernandez of Belle, are both in the Maries County Jail. A third suspect is free for now, but Sheriff Chris Heitman expects charges on that person sometime this week.
