  • On Monday, Oct. 29, members of the Northeast Missouri Narcotics Task Force conducted a drug investigation that led to the arrest of a woman for possession of a controlled substance and a man for attempt to manufacture a controlled substance.
    The investigation began after the Task Force received a call from a local hardware store about an individual purchasing items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. The individual was then seen going to other local stores purchasing more items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
    A traffic stop was later conducted, where the items purchased from the stores were seized. Another item with methamphetamine residue was also found in the vehicle.
    The Marion County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Task Force with the traffic stop. A man and woman were arrested and placed on a 24-hour hold. They were transported to the Marion County Jail.
    On Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Marion County prosecuting attorney’s office filed charges on both individuals who were arrested.
    Taiya Phelps, 22, of Saverton, Mo., was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class C felony.
    James Guill, 32, of Hannibal, Mo., was charged with attempt to manufacture a controlled substance, a Class B felony.
    Marion County Associate Circuit Judge John Jackson issued a $25,000 cash only warrant for Phelps and a $100,000 cash only warrant for Guill.
    The Task Force appreciates the assistance and cooperation from citizens and local businesses.
