COLUMBIA — Two Pine Grove Village residents were arrested on drug and child endangerment charges Tuesday morning, according to a news release from Sgt. Britt Shea of the Boone County Sheriff's Department.
Columbia residents Mitchell Fisher and Alexis McHugh were arrested after the Sheriff's Department served a search warrant at their home at 3900 Clark Lane as part of an investigation that started with a citizen complaint.
In the home, deputies found a small quantity of methamphetamine, marijuana packaged for sale, evidence indicating meth was being sold from the residence, several counterfeit $20 bills, and numerous items of paraphernalia used to process and inject heroin, according to the news release.
