A search warrant conducted at a house in Hannibal's South Side neighborhood resulted in a felony charge against a Hannibal man.

On Friday, June 15, Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton filed a felony charge of distribution of a controlled substance in a protected location against Euhlan Leeders, 36, of Hannibal.

The charge stems from a search warrant executed on Thursday, June 14, by Hannibal Police Department’s Anti-Crime Enforcement Squad (ACES) officers at house in the 1200 block of Valley St.

Leeders was taken into custody after officers allegedly located methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The Hannibal Police Department’s Community Service Officers were also called to the residence for multiple property maintenance violations.

A second person was taken into custody. As of Monday, June 18, charges had not been filed against him. The Courier-Post typically does not identify suspects of a crime if they do not face charges.

Leeders' bond is set at $100,000 cash only. He remains housed in the Marion County Jail.
