Lee’s Summit Man With A Lengthy History Of Arrest For Possession Of Controlled Substances Arrested Again
November 17, 2012
November 1, Ronald A. McCullough, ( w/m dob: 02/06/72),
Lee’s Summit resident committed three class C felonies:
possession of methamphetamine, clonazepam, alprazolam in
violation of Section 195.202, RSMo and a pipe, which was
drug paraphernalia, class A misdemeanor, violation of
Section 195.233, RSMo, according to court documents.
According to court documents McCullough is being held in
Jackson County Detention on a $20,000 cash bond.
According to the Statement of Probable Cause, Lee's Summit Police Department pulled McCullough over after he failed to stop at a posted stop sign at NE Corder Avenue and NE Orchard Street.
Officers discovered that McCullough did not have a valid drivers license in Missouri or any other state. Officers knew from McCullough’s previous contact with LSPD that he had been in possession of illegal drugs in the past.
The officer also knew that McCullough was on the High Risk Offender list. The officer also learned that McCullough was currently on probation in Jackson County for felony possession of a controlled substance.
McCullough was arrested for driving without a valid license and his vehicle was towed from the scene.
The Lee’s Summit Police officer then requested that a K-9 officer respond to the scene. When Lee’s Summit Police officer K-9 Griff arrived, K-9 Griff “alerted” on the center console indicating the possible presence of illegal drugs.
Officers located a small black zippered pouch shoved between the front passenger seat and the center console. The pouch contained a scorched black pipe, a clear Ziploc bag containing a white crystal substance, a clear Ziploc bag containing two pink, round pills and one loose green Ziploc bag and one larger, clear Ziploc bag that contained eight more green Ziploc bags.
McCullough was searched in Detention and a green Ziploc bag containing a white crystal substance was found on the ground next to his shoe. The nine green Ziploc bags located in the vehicle matched the green Ziploc bag recovered in Detention. McCullough was “Mirandized” and he requested an attorney.
A criminal records check of McCullough’s information revealed that he has 10 previous arrests for possession of a controlled substance.
