A pair of Granger residents are in custody on drug charges following the execution of a search warrant at their residence September 27.

The Scotland County Sheriff's Department arrested Robin D. Spurgeon, 37, and Carolyn S. Spurgeon, 37, on numerous felony drug charges.

Officers executed the search warrant at the residence in Granger and discovered a large quantity of marijuana.

The arrests came after a lengthy investigation instigated by the sheriff's department. They were assisted at the arrest scene by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and officers from the Memphis Police Department.

Carolyn and Robin Spurgeon each face felony charges of manufacturing/production of a controlled substance; possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver/distribute or sell; possession of a controlled substance; and endangering the welfare of a child.
