A Morley, Missouri man and a Richland, Missouri woman are facing drug charges, according to Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter.

David D. Kelley, 41, was charged with two counts of possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance and possession of any methamphetamine precursor drug with the intent to manufacture.

His bond was set at $25,000 cash only.

Leslie A. Jarboe, 53, was arrested on an outstanding warrant through Miller County, Mo. for possession of amphetamine.

Her bond was set at $25,000 cash or surety bond pending extradition.

According to Sheriff Walter, on Monday, Oct. 20 around 9:41 p.m., deputies served a search warrant at a home on Ault in Morley. He said Kelley and Jarboe were arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail.

Deputies received a search warrant because a deputy learned about a person at that address that had an outstanding warrant. The deputy also learned that the people at the home were allegedly involved in the making and distribution of meth.

Sheriff Walter said deputies went to the home and talked to Kelley who was outside in the yard.

Deputies say Kelley allowed the deputy inside the home. While inside, the deputy found Jarboe, who had an outstanding warrant, and also found items associated with the distribution of controlled substances in plain view.

According to Sheriff Walter, based on what the deputies saw in the home, they applied for a search warrant and received it.

During the search, he said deputies found multiple items in the house and outbuildings including: methamphetamine, Alprazolam (Xanax), Ephedrine, drain cleaner, Ammonium Nitrate, Coleman fuel, coffee filters and several other items of paraphernalia including glass pipes and small plastic baggies.

Deputies say all of the items are commonly associated with the making, distribution, use and sale of meth.

Also found inside the home were three rifles, one of which deputies say had deep scratches on the serial numbers in an apparent attempt to deface them.

Sheriff Walter said they contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in reference to possible federal firearms violations.

Anyone with information about this investigation, or any other crime, is asked to contact the Scott County Sheriff's Office at 545-3525 or leave a message on the crime tip line at 1-866-210-4322.
