DESLOGE POLICE ARREST A HALF-DOZEN PEOPLE FOR DRUGS AND DOMESTIC ASSAULT. It’s been a busy 6 weeks for officers in the St. Francois County town. In 2 incidents they arrested at least 8 people. At one point, officers did what they call a “knock and talk,” when they knock on a door, tell those inside what they’re looking for and ask for permission to search. At the address in Desloge, they found drugs and drug paraphernalia and arrested 2 men and 3 women. At about the same time, an officer spotted a 31-year-old man who was flailing his arms, grinding his teeth and grunting. The department’s K-9 officer alerted to the presence of narcotics and that man was arrested. Two more people were arrested for a domestic assault involving a knife. None of the names of the people involved have been released.
