KELSO, MO (KFVS) -

A Kelso father and son are charged with drug related charges after police search their home.

Raymond M. Martin, 48, of Kelso was charged with possession of a controlled substance, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and hindering prosecution. His bond was set at $5,000.

Raymond M. Martin, Jr., 17, of Kelso was charged with possession of marijuana, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and hindering prosecution. His bond was set at $1,000.

According to Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter, investigators were trying to find a wanted person when they got information about illegal drug activity at the Martin's home in Kelso.

After getting a search warrant, police searched the home on Thursday afternoon. Police say substances believed to be marijuana and cocaine, along with a number of articles of drug paraphernalia were found inside the home.

Walter says the Martins are charged with hindering prosecution because they hid a wanted person inside the home and lied to officers when they asked if the person was there.
