A man with ties to Pulaski County is facing drug charges in Camden County after a large drug bust at his residence.
A Four Seasons man charged with eight felony counts related to drugs and endangering the welfare of a child was at one time a paramedic in the Lake area as well as Pulaski County. The Pulaski County Ambulance District told the Daily Guide that he hasn’t been employed by them since April of this year.
Vince Ray Loyd, 46, was arrested on July 14, 2017 after members of the Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Task Force and Camden County deputies served a search warrant at a residence located in the 200 block of Fairlawn Circle.
Loyd was charged with three counts of delivery of a controlled substance, a Class C felony, four counts possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a Class D Felony. Loyd is being held in the Camden County Jail on a $30,000 cash-only bond.
According to the probable cause statement, “Loyd is currently employed as a Paramedic with the Texas County Memorial Hospital and the Pulaski County Ambulance District.”
However, according to the Pulaski County Ambulance District, he is a former employee whose last day was April 21, 2017 after previously submitting a two-week notice.
Loyd was also a past Division Chief of EMS for the Lake Ozark Fire Protection District. While Loyd’s page on LinkedIn indicated his current position was LOFPD EMS Division Chief, he has not worked there for over a year, according to LOFPD Assistant Fire Chief Matt Birdsley. Loyd quit working for the district on July 1, 2016.
During the search of Loyd’s residence July 14, 2017, detectives located “a white sock containing a condom full of urine, paperwork for a First Check self drug screen, a drug screening check, and clothing, equipment, and identifications for his employment as a Paramedic were located in the master bedroom and bathroom closet.”
An unidentified minor son of Loyd’s was home at the time of the arrest and the Missouri Department of Social Services Children’s Division was contacted as well as the mother of the child. The minor was released into the custody of the mother’s friend, according to the court document.
At approximately 11:15 p.m. Friday, investigators “forced entry into the residence,” provided a copy of the search warrant to Loyd and advised him of his Miranda Rights.
Loyd advised the officer he understood his rights and did not waive them while declining to answer any questions, the court document states.
A plethora of narcotics, drugs and paraphernalia were seized from the residence, according to the probable cause statement.
