ACSO: Adair Co. man arrested for trafficking methamphetamine

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, at 10:14pmCT, a Columbia man was charged with 2 counts of trafficking in a controlled substance 1st degree after a lengthy investigation.

The case began when the Adair County Sheriff's Office initiated an investigation into multiple complaints of Christopher McClister, 23, also known as "Critter," selling narcotics, specifically methamphetamine. Over the course of the investigation, the Adair County Sheriff's Office substantiated the complaints and was therefore able to make a series of controlled buys of methamphetamine from McClister.

The evidence was presented to Commonwealth Attorney Brian Wright, who brought the case before an Adair County Grand Jury. As a result, the indictments for arrest were issued. McClister is lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail on a $15,000 full cash bond.

Chief Deputy Justin Cross was lead investigator in the case. The Adair County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Columbia Police Department in the search and arrest of McClister.
