Suspect in Russellville meth bust identified

RUSSELLVILLE, Mo. - The Cole County Sheriff's Department said the man behind the largest meth bust in Cole County in years is Emmanuel Guillen.

Sheriff's deputies along with the ATF and Mustang Drug Task Force seized 632 grams of methamphetamine as well as multiple weapons from Guillen's home in Russellville.

Authorities told ABC 17 News they believe the meth was trafficked in to Missouri.

They also said Guillen could be part of a large drug ring organization.

Cole County Prosecutor Mark Richardson confirmed Guillen is charged with felony drug trafficking, unlawful possession of an illegal weapon, and receiving stolen property.

Federal charges against Guillen could be filed Monday.

Guillen is being held in the Cole County jail without bond.
