Carl Junction man caught in midweek JPD SWAT raid arrested three times in three months on drug charges

Less than two weeks after the Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney filed drug trafficking charges against Tristan Forkner, 32, the Carl Junction man was arrested again by the Joplin Police Department during a Wednesday morning SWAT raid at a home at 2724 S. Minnesota.

Forkner was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

It was his third drug-related arrest in the past three months, according to online court records.

Also charged, according to JPD records were the resident at that address, Christina Harris, 47, whose bond was set at $30,000 cash or surety on charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child, David Kerry, 47, Joplin, possession of drug paraphernalia and Damon Waggoner, 47, Joplin, for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Online Jasper County Circuit Court records indicate Forkner posted a $1,000 bond Friday on the earlier drug charge.

Forkner has yet another drug possession charge pending against him in Jasper in connection with a May 23, arrest.
