Brewer, 39, of rural Sikeston all face charges of attempting to manufacture a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and possession of methamphetamine precursors.

Jerry L. Pullam, 33, of Sikeston, faces a charge of hindering prosecution.

Bond was set at $100,000 for all four suspects facing drug charges.  Pullam's bond was set at $15,000 cash or surety.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office, Miner Police Department, and Missouri State Highway Patrol investigated the bust.
