From Sara Shepherd: A dealer one methamphetamine user described as “The Man” of Independence-area meth sales has been arrested and was implicated this week in federal court.
Homer G. Boling is accused of illegally possessing a firearm, according to a criminal complaint filed this week in federal court. The complaint states Boling is a meth user and is on felony probation for a prior offense.
According to the complaint:
Earlier this month a confidential source told Independence police that Boling had several guns in his home and had been selling large amounts of meth. When the source obtained meth from Boling, Boling regularly required the source to smoke the drug with him.
The source told police Boling had “hundreds” of customers and that many considered him the principal source for meth in Independence, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit and Belton.
