Deputies find “enormous” amount of crystal methamphetamine in Mississippi County home
A Mississippi County couple has been charged with several felonies after deputies found a “significant amount” of narcotics in their home.
Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore says the investigation began last month when his department received information that narcotics were being distributed by Edward “Eddy” Boyer.
Boyer’s East Prairie home was placed under surveillance and deputies noticed several indicators of illegal drug activity. The department was able to obtain a search warrant for the home and served it on Monday.
Inside, deputies seized several thousand dollars in cash, an “enormous” amount of crystal methamphetamine, and “significant” quantities of heroin, marijuana, and prescription pain pills.
55-year-old Edward Boyer and 50-year-old Darcy Boyer were arrested.
Edward is charged with three counts of distribution of a controlled substance near a school and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. He was charged with distribution of narcotics in a school zone due to the home’s close proximity to A.J. Martin Elementary.
Darcy is charged with possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
Edwards in in the Mississippi County Detention Center on a $500,000 cash only bond.
Darcy is also behind bars on a $250,000 cash only bond.
