Comments Off on Elected Ray County coroner, Toby L. Polley, 46, accused of smoking Methamphetamine inside hearse

RIVERSIDE, MO (KCTV) – The elected coroner in Ray County is accused of smoking meth inside a hearse while parked outside a Kansas City area casino, according to court records.6928170_G

Toby L. Polley, 46, was cited for possession of a controlled substance. He is slated to appear in Riverside municipal court on April 15.

Surveillance video on Feb. 24 captured Polley inside the white hearse smoking from a glass pipe as it was parked outside Argosy Casino. A Riverside police officer questioned Polley, who owns several funeral homes in Excelsior Springs, Lawson and Richmond.

Police said Polley admitted to taking the glass pipe and the white substance, which he said was meth, from an employee.

“It was there and he wanted to see what the deal was with it,” according to police.

Polley was elected in 2012. Some Ray County residents were stunned by the allegations, and some residents believe he should resign.

“It’s crazy, it’s shocking. I can’t believe that we voted for him and that’s what he did,” Samantha Williams said.

Natalie Macy, who runs a bail bonds office in Ray County, concurs.

Methamphetamines, they’re terrible. It ruins people’s lives. And as he will see, it will ruin his,” Macy said.

Online records show that Polley has faced a string of financial problems.
