NEVADA, Mo. — A wanted fugitive is in custody after an apartment was raided by a narcotics team earlier this week.

According to a release of information from Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher, his office served a search warrant at a residence on N. Clay Street in Nevada, Mo. late Tuesday, and arrested Jamie Boykin, who was wanted on a US extradition parole violation warrant.

Mosher said suspected methamphetamines were also located during the execution of the search warrant. That investigation is on-going by members of the Sheriff’s Office and the CNET Drug Task Force.

Boykin, 46, of Nevada is being held without bond in the Vernon County jail.

CNET DRUG TASK FORCE: “The goal of the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team Drug Task Force is to identify and prosecute high-level drug traffickers operating in our community.
