Two convicted felons are facing a new slew of charges following a May 11 incident at a home on N. 4th St. in Hannibal.

Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton announced the charges on Friday, May 12.

Robert and Heather Roland face two charges of possession of a controlled substance and three charges of unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to a probable cause statement filed with the 10th Circuit Court of Marion County, police found methamphetamine and heroin in a room the couple was staying in.

The probable cause statement indicated the Hannibal Police Department received a tip that possible drug use was taking place at the residence. When police attempted to contact the Rolands, who were in a bedroom of the 4th St. home, they allegedly stalled. Eventually, consent was received to search the room.

Heather Roland indicated firearms were wrapped in a piece of carpet in the room. Police allegedly discovered two rifles and a a black Ruger AR-556. Since both Heather and Robert Roland are convicted felons, they are not permitted to own the firearms.

Paraphernalia found in a safe in the bedroom field tested positive for methamphetamine, according to police.

The range of punishments for all five charges range from 10 to 35 years in the Department of Corrections.

Both are being held in the Marion County Jail on bonds of $50,000.
