On March 2, 2018, at 8:45 a.m. the deputies of the Platte County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant in the 6900 block of NW Birch Court in Kansas City, Missouri, related to narcotics activity. Approximately 76 pounds of marijuana, multiple firearms were seized from the residence. Brandon Romines, 36 of Kansas City, MO, was taken into custody as a result of the search warrant. Approximately $5,000 in cash was also seized as part of the investigation. The case was investigated by the Platte County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit.

Sheriff Mark Owen stated, “Thanks to the hard work of our Narcotics Unit, 76 pounds of marijuana has been removed from the streets of Platte County. The individual arrested in this case had multiple firearms. This case is an example of how the people who deal marijuana can be just as dangerous as people who deal other types of narcotics.”
