3/4 lb of meth nets probation for Saline Co man

Richard Buckner

A Saline County man gets off with probation after investigators intercept almost a pound of meth that was sent to his house.

Richard Buckner, 54, of Marshall was arrested last Spring after detectives discovered a suspicious package in Pettis County, that was headed to Buckner's address.  

A search of the package turned up three-quarters of a pound of meth. 

Additional meth, a handgun, and items that suggested Buckner was selling meth were found during a search of his home.  

Buckner was sentenced Tuesday to five years supervised probation.
