STEELE, MO (KAIT) -

A search warrant executed at a home in the Missouri Bootheel ended up with a man facing charges for trafficking drugs.

Steele Police Chief Billy Joe Stanfield said officers and deputies with the Pemiscot County Sheriff's Department responded to a home on McCollum Street on Wednesday.

When they arrived, they charged Thomas Chris Jones, 31, with burglary, assault, unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful use of a firearm.

His bond was set for those charges at $100,000.

Among those drugs were suspected crack cocaine, ecstasy pills, marijuana, and methamphetamine.

Police talked with the Pemiscot County prosecuting attorney and added charges to Jones.

Those charges included trafficking drugs and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

He also had a $50,000 dollar bond added.
