ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- St. Louis Police say one of the city’s most dangerous drug dealers is behind bars and facing federal prosecution.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Michael Glover, 40, was a high profile member of the drug world who had large sums of money and an arsenal inside his home at Roberts Place on Enright in North St. Louis.
Glover had evaded police for months, but when the Violent Offender Unit caught up with him last week, court documents show police discovered 11 guns and about two kilograms of heroin, worth about $200,000 on the street. Police also found almost $200,000 cash—all stashed in a secret compartment inside a dresser.
Police say they knew Glover was dangerous. They had been pursuing him after he’d allegedly shot at officers during a standoff at a North St. Louis County apartment complex last September. He was arrested but bonded out and never came back to court. When the task force found him, they say he was armed with a handgun and refused to come out, so they broke in to arrest him.
“This gentleman presented a clear threat to any law enforcement officer who happened to come in contact with him, perhaps even unknowingly,” U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan said. “This man was a one-man army. He had an arsenal and had $200,000 cash and almost $200,000 in drugs.”
Glover faces a federal judge next week. Callahan says more charges are coming.
