A Sedalia man was arrested Thursday morning and has been charged with multiple drug offenses.

According to a Sedalia Police Department news release, Elijah A.

Nash was transported to the Pettis County Jail, where he was placed on a 24-hour hold pending charges.

He has since been charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. Nash was issued an $80,000 bond, cash or surety.
