COLUMBIA — A woman was arrested for five outstanding warrants after an investigation revealed methamphetamine was being sold from a Columbia residence.

Shannon M. Jones, 29, of Columbia, was arrested for five outstanding arrest warrants, including numerous failure to appear warrants for traffic incidents and a stealing warrant. Jones’ total bond was set at $20,200 plus $800 cash.

Boone County Sheriff's Department officers served a search warrant at 5:38 p.m. Wednesday at 400 W. Texas Ave.

The warrant was requested and issued after the methamphetamine sale was discovered and it was found the residence had been used by known drug users, a few who had outstanding warrants for their arrest, a release from the sheriff's department said. Three adults were inside the residence.

Items that could be considered evidence were found inside the residence in a backpack, including:

  • A small quantity of methamphetamine
  • Packaging material
  • A digital scale

The investigation is active and continuing, according to the release.
