Two Triplett residents are facing drug-related felony charges.
According to a probable-cause statement, as the result of a narcotics investigation, a North Missouri Drug Task Force confidential informant purchased $100 of methamphetamine from 53-year-old James Long on March 6.
Authorities later executed a search warrant and uncovered multiple drug-related items that field tested positive for methamphetamine at a residence in the 22700 block of Hog Ridge Avenue- the same location where the sale of methamphetamine took place.
Warrants have been issued and Long and 30-year-old Mary Fagan each has been charged with a Class C Felony for Delivery of a Controlled Substance and a drug-related misdemeanor. Bond for Long has been set at $10,000 and for Fagan at $5,000 cash only.
An initial hearing for each of the accused is pending at Chariton County Circuit Court.
