(KAIR)--The execution of a search warrant, at a Jackson County residence Wednesday, led to the arrest of two occupants, stemming from a drug and burglary investigation.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a release, identifies the pair as 40-year-old Justin Stephens and 35-year-old Chellice Sparks, both of Mayetta.

Morse, in the release, says the search warrant was served on the rural Mayetta residence, near 190th and S. Roads, after his office received a report of a burglary to a residence, and two outbuildings, in the 18000 block of S. Road, near Mayetta, on November 9. Among the numerous items reported stolen from that property was a Kawasaki UTV and a 4-wheel-drive Club Car golf cart, that were then sold to an individual in Lawrence. The vehicles were later recovered.

During the search, drugs, drug paraphernalia and items believed to have been stolen in the S. Road burglary were allegedly found at the residence.

Stephens faces charges for burglary, felony theft, criminal trespass, and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a hallucinogenic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, and aggravated endangerment of a child.
Sparks faces charges for burglary, felony theft, criminal trespass, criminal damage to property, possession of methamphetamine, aggravated endangering a child, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a hallucinogenic drug.

Following their arrests Wednesday, the duo was booked into the Jackson County Jail.
