Two Mid-Missourians are in jail after allegedly selling meth in Centralia.
Police Chief Larry Dudgeon reports officers arrested 41-year-old Paul Boles of Mexico, and 32-year-old Holly Blankenship of Fulton (both pictured), for the sale at about 5:00 p.m. Tuesday on the east side of town along Highway 22.
“We’ve been investigating the matter for a while, and the individuals that we arrested came to light. As a result of that, we were successful in respect to the arrest,” Dudgeon says.
Boles and Blankenship are both in jail on felony drug charges.
Those busts weren’t the only meth arrests Tuesday. Late that evening, in Martinsburg, drug task force officers arrested 19-year-old Ryan Wieberg for meth, marijuana, synthetic cannabinoids, and more. Plus, Maries County authorities busted 52-year-old Dennis Lawson of Dixon at a home on Highway 133 for meth and illegal firearms. He’s already a seven-time convicted felon.
