Three Boone County residents have been arrested and over $1 million in drugs and property, including over 400 pounds of marijuana and edibles, were seized following a raid at a residence Wednesday. No names have been released by the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

A press release indicates officers from multiple agencies including the Boone County Sheriff’s Office, Harrison Police Department and its Special Operations Team, the Branson Police Department and the 14th Judicial District Drug Task Force executed three search warrants at the home on Primrose Lane. Officers seized 289 pounds of processed marijuana and 176 pounds of THC edibles and wax valued at $836,476, three vehicles valued at $190,000, three all-terrain vehicles valued at $12,000, two motorcycles valued at $27,000, 67 firearms and $6,411 in cash. The total value of the items seized is $1,071,887.

The investigation revealed large amounts of marijuana and edibles, containing THC, were being transported from other states to the Boone County area for resale. The edibles seized include hundreds of packages of THC products commercially packaged to mimic “Gummy”-type candies and are being found in schools in the area.
