A deputy sheriff who is considered one of Missouri's best-known anti-methamphetamine crusaders won a $5 million jury verdict Wednesday from a Gray Summit meth maker over injuries suffered in a raid.
Franklin County sheriff's Sgt. Jason Grellner sued Troy J. Manning last year, claiming he was permanently injured by a cloud of anhydrous ammonia during a 2002 raid of Manning's home.
