As a result of the investigation, George H. Barsoum age 23 of Rolla, Missouri was arrested for five counts of delivery of a controlled substance and one count of unlawful use of a weapon. He was incarcerated in the Phelps County Jail. Warrants were later issued on the six counts with a $200,000 cash or surety bond.
