Palestine residents face drug charges after search
A Palestine woman was arrested on multiple drug charges following a search conducted at a Palestine residence Saturday.

A complaint of suspected drug activity in the 300 block of South Pike was received by Palestine Officer Brandon Carpenter Friday, who then submitted information following an investigation to Chief Jeff Besing. Besing then contacted Crawford County Assistant State's Attorney Cole Shaner seeking a search warrant for a residence at 306 S. Pike, which Shaner had granted and signed by Crawford County Circuit Judge Christopher Weber.

The search warrant was executed about 9 p.m. Saturday and resulted in the arrest of Marti R. Steadman, 20, who was charged with unlawful possession of under 30 grams of cannabis, unlawful manufacturing and/or delivery of cannabis and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Steadman was also cited for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. She was taken to the Crawford County Jail where she was charged, processed and released on $1,525 bond.

Two other citations for unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia were issued to Taylor M. Heard, 23, Palestine, and Taylor M. Wesley, 23, Palestine, who also lived at that residence. Assisting the Palestine Police Department with the search warrant was Crawford County Sheriff's Office Sergeant. Rich Cravens and Deputy Terry Carr.
