Police seek former Mo. elementary school principal accused of running heroin trafficking ring

HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) — Police are searching for a former Hannibal elementary school principal as part of a drug investigation.

The Northeast Missouri Narcotics Task Force searched two homes last week in Hannibal and found enough heroin to make more than 800 capsules, with a street value between $8,000 and $12,000. They also found methamphetamine and methadone.

WGEM reports three people were charged, including former A.D. Stowell Elementary School principal Joshua Foust, who resigned as principal in early February. He is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. He was still not in custody on Monday.

Also facing drug charges are 31-year-old Samuel Foust and 32-year-old Ryan Thompson, both of Hannibal. They were taken into custody last week.
