Three area suspects were arrested on drug-related charges last Wednesday.

Deputies with the Moniteau County Sheriff's Office heard radio traffic of a report of suspicious activity in California at 2:45 a.m. March 18 near the area of South Roache and West Wilkes streets. Deputies responded to assist the California Police Department with the call.

Upon arrival, they made contact with three subjects identified as Eric P. Miller, 35; Curtis D. Matheney, 25; and James L. Suggs, 41. The subjects told officers they were in the area to pick up a trailer to help move one of the subjects. Deputies ran the subjects and found Miller was currently on probation and parole for burglary, Matheney was currently on probation and parole for burglary and possession of a controlled substance and Suggs was also currently on probation and parole for possession of a controlled substance.

Law enforcement officers on the scene then searched the subjects and the area. Upon search, deputies located a rolled up piece of paper that contained a white substance which field tested positive for methamphetamine. All three subjects were taken into custody at that time.
