Two people were arrested after authorities executed a search warrant in Galena last weekend.
Stone County authorities were assisted by C.O.M.E.T drug officers and Nixa police in the raid at 234 August Drive last Saturday (06-14-14).
Detective Bruce Belin writes in court documents that a warrant was obtained to search the property for suspected stolen property. Authorities found a stolen Kawasaki 4 wheeler and a Polaris Sportsman 4 wheeler in the raid. Also recovered were tires and rims to a boat trailer, 5 firearms, 35 grams of marijuana, 2 marijuana plants and "smoking instruments that tested positive for methamphetamine," according to the probable cause statement.
Robbie J. Chambers, 46, who was at the property at the time the warrant was executed, has been charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property and unlawful possession of a firearm.
The stolen items recovered included jewelry, motorcycles, trailers, power tools and a Jeep, according to Stone County Sheriff Doug Radar. They were stolen from several counties in Missouri and from other states. "It is believed the amount of property seized is well in excess of $100,000.00," Rader said in a news release.
He is being held in the Stone County jail on a $50,000 cash only bond.
Tammy May Gettle, 43, who was also at the home when the warrant was served, was arrested on outstanding warrants out of Stone and Christian counties.
In December of 2013 Gettle was placed on five years probation after she pled guilty to drug possession (methamphetamine and marijuana.) Two months later a warrant was issued for her arrest after she violated her probation. In April of 2014, authorities in Christian County charged Gettle with five counts of possession of a controlled substance, DWI and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
She is being held without bond in the Stone County jail.
