Thursday, February 24, 2011 | 5:11 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — A roughly two-year-long undercover narcotics investigation in central Missouri resulted in six arrests Wednesday, bringing the total number of people in prison with narcotics warrants related to the drug operation to 10.

Four other suspects connected to the investigation were already in custody for other charges, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

The suspects were in jail on charges unrelated to the undercover operation, department spokeswoman Jill Wieneke said in an e-mail.

"Warrants were issued for all suspects at the same time. Some of them just happened to already be in jail," Wieneke added in an e-mail.

The Columbia Police Department, Boone County Sheriff’s Department, Mustang Drug Task Force and the Fayette Police Department worked together to arrest the following suspects in connection to the drug operation: 

  • Tyhesia Brimmage, 21, on suspicion of two counts of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance and first-degree trafficking; held on a $100,000 bond.
  • Stacey Campbell, 21, on suspicion of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance; held on a $100,000 bond.
  • Latisha Stapleton, 35, on suspicion of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance; held on a $100,000 bond.
  • Heather McDonald, 32, on suspicion of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance; held on a $100,000 bond.
  • Glenn Cobbins Jr., 28, on suspicion of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance; held on a $200,000 bond. Cobbins also had a warrant for parole absconding with no bond.
  • Michael Reaves, 41, on suspicion of distribution, delivery and manufacture of a controlled substance; held on a $100,000 bond.

Eleven suspects are still wanted on outstanding warrants related to the undercover investigation, according to the release:

  • Dana Bledsoe, 34
  • Reginald Brimmage, 43
  • Corey Jordan, 23           
  • William Hill, 25                       
  • Demetrius Washington, 21
  • Michael Ramey-Pennington, 21
  • Brittany Patterson, 21
  • Adrian Wright, 21
  • Darion Logan, 17
  • Bruce Jordan, 30
  • Anthony Warren, 23

Anyone with information about these suspects is urged to contact police or CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS.
