Two Charged after Meth Bust

A mother and son are accused of dealing methamphetamine out of their trailer home in Freeburg after authorities serving a search warrant said they found a medium-sized meth operation. Brenda Stringer, 42, and her son, Frank Bryant, 23, were charged for drugs on Friday. Stringer was charged for possessing marijuana, other drugs, and drug paraphernalia. Investigators found syringes, glass pipes, prescription drugs, and baggies that tested positive with meth residue on them, said Det. Gary Storey of Osage County Sheriff’s Department who was part of a team of officers who raided the home Thursday. About ten deputies from Osage County Sheriff’s Department and troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol served a search warrant at the suspects’ home on 300 block of N. Chestnut Street. According to the probable case statement, Bryant admitted to selling meth in Freeburg, Missouri for a couple years. Two others were arrested on Thursday after officers observed them coming out of the home. Those two have not been formally charged, but deputies expect more charges to come. “They’re not small fish, but they’re not big fish. We’re going to use them to get to the bigger fish,” said Det. Storey.
