2 arrested at residence, both accused of possession of drugs

After receiving a tip containing unspecified information, two individuals were arrested following a search of their residence. The Missouri authorities claim that they found substances that could be used to manufacture methamphetamine. A woman was arrested on an outstanding warrant, and a man was arrested for various charges, including possession of drugs with the intent to distribute.

The nature of the tip is unknown, but it led the authorities to investigate the residence. Just after 9:40 p.m., the authorities executed the search warrant. When they arrived at the residence, the 41-year-old man was sitting outside. One of the officers spoke with him, and the suspect reportedly allowed the officers inside the home.

When they entered the residence and saw the 53-year-old woman, they arrested her for an outstanding possession of amphetamine warrant. The authorities claim that they saw items "associated" with operating a drug business, but those alleged items were not specified. The man was arrested for possession of a methamphetamine precursor drug with the intent to manufacture, and he was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute. All three charges are felonies.

It is not clear whether the woman will face additional charges on top of those she already faces concerning the warrant. The man's possession of drugs and other charges are clearly serious. Both Missouri individuals would do well to begin gathering knowledge pertaining to their specific situations in an effort to form their criminal defenses in a manner that they each deem to be beneficial to their individual interests.
