Two people face charges after authorities found marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia during a search of a Spencer residence Sunday night. The search followed a warrant check by a Clay County Sheriff’s Office deputy at 119 West 2nd Street on Juan Fernando Martinez Jr., 57, just before 7 p.m.
Martinez Jr. had an active Clay County warrant for driving with a denied, suspended, cancelled or revoked license, according to court records. He was taken into custody with help from the Spencer Police Department, a news release from the sheriff’s office states. While the investigation was taking place, Veronica Millison, 51, was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. She was placed under arrest.
