THREE PERSONS CHARGED WITH DRUG-RELATED FELONIES AFTER CONSENTED SEARCH OF RESIDENCE

After a member of the North Missouri Drug Task Force allegedly found several drug-related items during a consented search of a residence in Brunswick on February 8, three area residents have been charged with felonies.

According to a probable-cause statement, several broken pipes and multiple baggies containing a crystal-like substance confirmed to be methamphetamine were located.

Online court documents say warrants have been issued and 42-year-old Tammy Michelle Marshall, of Brunswick and 43-year-old John January Jr., of Keytesville, each has been charged with two counts of a Class D Felony for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Except 35 Grams or Less of Marijuana and a Class E Felony for Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia- Amphetamine or Methamphetamine. Bond for each of the accused was set at $5,000 cash only. A criminal summons was issued, and also charged with the same felonies was 43-year-old Melissa Kistler, of Brunswick.

Kistler’s initial appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 27, at Chariton County Circuit Court in Keytesville. The initial appearance for each of the other two accused persons is pending.
