SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) -

Three people were arrested following an undercover Heroin drug sting in Sikeston, Missouri.

Thomas Wheeler, 28, Ginny Wattler, 31, and Scott McGuire, 32, all of St. Louis were all charged with distribution of a controlled substance (Heroin) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter, the three suspects sold $600 of heroin to undercover officers late Friday evening, at a location the suspects suggested near Sikeston High School. 

Sheriff Walter says investigators had initially received information Heroin was being transported between St. Louis and Sikeston.

The three suspects were taken to the Scott County Jail on $75,000 bond each.
