2 arrested, child removed by DHS after warrantAug 2nd, 2013 | By Editor | Category: Misc
On a quiet corner at West Rogers and S. Oak sits an unassuming gray house, the site of a warrant served at 6 am Thursday morning.
The doors barricaded and windows covered so no one could see in, members of the Special Operations Team (SOT) made a forced entry, assisted by the Boone County Sheriffs Department and the Drug Task Force
39-year-old John C. Williams and 22-year-old Samantha Lenora Pederson were arrested after officers found marijuana, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and cash inside the home.
Department of Human Services took custody of a child who was also on the premises.
Williams is being held on other warrants relating to a recent drug arrest, but Pederson was released on bond after being charged with possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Here is hoping that the child that was removed will have a chance if returned to his mother.
