ST. LOUIS (AP) — A former southeast Missouri sheriff already facing methamphetamine charges is now accused of distributing cocaine.

The Missouri Attorney General’s office confirmed Monday that charges against former Carter County Sheriff Tommy Adams were amended to add two additional felony counts.

Adams, originally charged with meth distribution, is now also accused of possession of a controlled substance and distribution of cocaine.

Phone messages left with a spokeswoman for Attorney General Chris Koster and with David Mann, Adams’ attorney, were not returned. The attorney general’s office is prosecuting the case.

Adams was arrested in April and resigned as sheriff a short time later.
