Disturbance leads to meth arrests

Police arrested two Columbia residents on drug charges on Thursday after an earlier domestic violence call revealed signs of a methamphetamine lab at a residence.

“While we were inside the house, we saw what appears to be meth, meth precursors and drug paraphernalia,” Columbia police Capt. Brad Nelson said.

Newspaper seeks to break conventions

Jason Bailey decided when he turned 30 that he had to do more than slam poetry to voice his feelings about Columbia. So he launched a newspaper called CoMo to provide what he said other local papers lack: community-based writers, diverse voices and sources, minorities and news beyond the strip between MU and Broadway.

CoMo’s mission is to “push the envelope” on issues such as education, politics, racism, ethnicity, culture, business, ageism and religion, he said.

Robbery attempted at Subway

A man attempted to rob a Subway restaurant at gunpoint Wednesday night, and Columbia police are looking for the suspect. No injuries were reported.

Police said an employee was exiting the restaurant, at 607 Business Loop 70 E., through the back door at about 11:19 p.m. when he was confronted by the suspect, who displayed a handgun. The suspect walked the employee to the cash register, but the employee was able to set off the in-store alarm. The suspect fled the business through the back door without obtaining any money, police said.
