MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday evening via Facebook that two individuals from Barnard had been arrested on Felony D charges for unlawful possession of a firearm during an investigation which took place Sunday and Monday.
The arrests of Richard Culp, 49, and Pamela Alloway, 51, both of Barnard, were the result of a hotline call to the Children’s Division of the Missouri Department of Social Services. The caller tipped the department to 24794 350th St. in Barnard. According to Sheriff Randy Strong, the children in question were removed from the location.
When officials arrived on the scene, it was discovered that Alloway and Culp, both convicted felons, were illegally in possession of firearms. Strong said in a Facebook video that a second search warrant revealed even more evidence.
“We’re back today (Monday) with a search warrant,” Strong explained. “We found additional long guns — one of them stolen — and several handguns in addition to a good size of methamphetamine.”
Strong said he suspects the two were dealing both methamphetamine and marijuana due to the amount of paraphernalia found at the scene. Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Bob Rice said Tuesday the second search brought additional charges for both Alloway and Culp.
