(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) One person is in custody following a drug bust on the southside of St. Joseph.
Deputies with Buchanan County Sheriff's office searched a house near the intersection of Lake and Kansas avenues Wednesday afternoon. The Buchanan County Drug Strike Force and the St. Joseph Police Department Street Team worked together on the investigation.
