“Justice was served and it’s always good to get a kilo-level dealer off the streets,” Clark County Assistant Prosecutor Ryan Saunders said. 

The case started when police executed a search warrant at a home on West Parkwood Avenue in Springfield, Saunders said. He said $3,000, a gun, and cocaine were found in the house. More money, scales and drugs were also found in an SUV.
