Excelsior Springs Man Faces Additional Charges Related to Meth Conspiracy

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that additional charges were contained in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury today against an Excelsior Springs, Mo., man related to his role in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

Anthony Trurice Grayson, 30, of Excelsior Springs, was charged in a five-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo. Today’s superseding indictment replaces an Aug. 7, 2013, federal indictment that only charged Grayson with one count of conspiracy.

Today’s indictment alleges that Grayson participated in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine from July 1 to July 16, 2013. Grayson is also charged with aiding and abetting others to manufacture methamphetamine, aiding and abetting others to possess pseudoephedrine to be used to manufacture methamphetamine, maintaining a residence that was available for the purpose of unlawfully manufacturing, storing and/or using methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of explosives.

This case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeff Q. McCarther. It was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
