COLUMBIA — The Boone County Sheriff’s Department found a "significant quantity of cocaine" in an apartment Thursday, Sgt. Britt Shea said.
Law enforcement officers searched 7711 Sharidan Blvd. Apt. C, which is located between Hallsville and Columbia between Highway HH and Route B, after citizen information led to an investigation of drug trafficking, according to the Sheriff's Department.
No one was home at the time, Shea said, but numerous items were seized, including cocaine packaged for distribution, items associated with cocaine distribution and a loaded handgun.
No arrests were made at the scene. The investigation continues.
