Just before noon Tuesday, members of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the Columbus Police Department executed a search warrant at 314 North Minnesota in Columbus.
During the course of the search, officers discovered what appeared to be methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
According to a release from the Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves, two children, a three month old and a three year old, were in the home, and subsequently taken into police protective custody.
“We kind of started watching the house after receiving an anonymous tip of suspicious activity,” he said, adding it was not a meth lab.
“They weren’t manufacturing, it was just finished product.”
The resident, identified as 27 year-old Megan Casey, was arrested and taken to the Cherokee County Jail and is being held on $10,000 bond.
She was formally charged in Cherokee County District Court on Thursday with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
Groves said the sheriff’s department received an anonymous tip about drug use in the home, which led to the search warrant and arrest.
