According to a probable cause statement filed in the Lafayette County Circuit Court , a Concordia man has been charged with felonies for alleged possession of a significant amount of an illegal drug earlier this year in Lafayette County.
The statement reports that on June 19, 2017, officers from the Concordia Police Department executed a search warrant at a residence in the 1200 block of South Gordon Street in Concordia.
During the search, 44-year-old Christopher Gardner reportedly was in possession of various drug paraphernalia, and approximately 40 grams of a liquid substance that reportedly tested positive for the presence of methamphetamine.
