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.

Most of these items and a loaded handgun were within reach of a juvenile, the release said.

Fisher was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, forgery, endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, and two active warrants for failure to appear, according to the release.

McHugh was charged with suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, according to court records. Her bond has been set at $4,500.

Both were held at Boone County Jail.

Supervising editor is Elise Schmelzer.
