Update: Local law enforcement says two people were arrested inside an Oneida convenience store as a multijurisdictional team consisting of local and state agents executed a search warrant at the store Friday afternoon.
Names were not immediately released. However, Scott County Sheriff's Department drug agent Kris Lewallen told the Independent Herald that two people were arrested for felony possession of drug paraphernalia for delivery or sale. The arrested suspects included an employee of the store and the employee's friend who was present when officers arrived.
The owner of the Oneida Shell station, located "on the corner" at the intersection of Alberta Street and Paint Rock Road and formerly known as Big John's on the corner, is under investigation and will likely face criminal charges as well, authorities said.To continue reading, please subscribe to the Independent Herald.
