KS man headed to federal prison for selling drugs to undercover cops in Central MO

A Kansas-state man is headed to federal prison for selling drugs to undercover cops in mid-Missouri, while on parole for murder.

Robert Toney, 67, of Olathe, Kansas, pleaded guilty in federal court, Wednesday, to distributing meth, possessing meth with the intent to distribute, and crossing state lines for the purpose of selling illegal drugs.  

He'll be sentenced at a later date but faces a minimum of ten years in prison.

The investigation into Toney began in December of 2018 when an undercover officer met him at a Columbia restaurant to buy meth. 

Then, about a month later, a sting operation was set up at a restaurant in Kingdom City, when another undercover officer met Toney to purchase meth, heroin, and cocaine.  That's when Toney was arrested.  

At the time Toney committed these crimes, he was on parole for murdering two people, including an off-duty police officer, during a robbery at a bar.  He served 38 years for the murders, before he was released on parole in 2010.
