Two Sedalia residents are facing felony drug charges after the execution of a search warrant on September 9.

According to a probable-cause statement, the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop A SWAT Team executed and seized a residence on Smasal Road in Sedalia for members of the Mid-Missouri Drug Task Force.

Inside the residence, authorities say they found methamphetamine; several controlled pills; multiple other drug-related items- including lithium batteries, a measuring cup with white powder and a small amount of red substance on the edges of the powder; digital scales; and a firearm.

Gerald Durrill has been charged with a Class C Felony for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance; two counts of a Class D Felony for Possession of a Controlled Substance; a Class D Felony for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm; a Class D Felony for Endangering the Welfare of a Child; and a Class E Felony for Unlawful Use of Drug Paraphernalia. Bond has been set at $50,000 cash or surety. Erin Durrill also has been charged with Class D Felonies for Endangering the Welfare of a Child and Possession of a Controlled Substance. Her bond has not been set yet.

An initial hearing for each of the accused is pending at Pettis County Circuit Court.
