Couple Arrested, Charged for Meth After Search Warrant Executed

MT. VERNON – Members of the Mt. Vernon Police Department and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office High-Risk Team executed a search warrant early Tuesday morning in the 8000 block of East Illinois Highway 148 resulting in the arrests of a couple.

The two primary residents, 46-year-old Rhett L. Sloan and 46-year-old Maranda K. Sloan, were taken into custody and initially charged with possession of drug equipment and possession of methamphetamine less than 5 grams with bail to be set by a judge. They were transported to the Jefferson County Jail.

Maranda was charged Thursday in Jefferson County Court with felony possession of less than 5-grams of meth, Rhett with felony delivery of between 15 and 100 grams of meth.

The couple was arrested in July 2019 when the High-Risk Team served a search warrant on their Highway 148 home stemming from another investigation.

Drug and firearms charges filed against the Sloans in the earlier raid are still pending in Jefferson County Court.
