Bicycles were a hot item for thieves in Neosho Monday, but the theft of a $14 phone charger early Tuesday resulted in drug charges against a pair, though the stolen charger was not recovered.
Police responded to Kum & Go, 16140 Missouri Highway 59 at 1:31 a.m. for a report of the stolen charger.
The suspects were stopped by officers later, and Lt. Mike Sharp said the charger was not found in the car. However, Alan McCullers, 50, of Goodman, was found in possession of marijuana and a small pipe, Sharp said. Other drug paraphernalia related to methamphetamine located in the car was attributed to William Graves, 41 of Neosho, he said. Graves also has an outstanding warrant.
Both are charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Two people were arrested when an officer effected a traffic stop at 4:45 p.m. Monday for a registration violation in the 300 block of West Color Street.
Gary Drum, 31 of Neosho, is charged with failure to display proper registration, driving while suspended and driving while revoked.
Passenger Amanda Pease, 38 of Goodman, was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
"She was found in possession of a container that had electronic scales and a baggie with a clear substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine," Sharp informed.
