Early Tuesday morning (June 26), Cooper County Sheriff's deputies and investigators with the Missouri State Highway Patrol executed a search warrant in Boonville, where they arrested a 49-year old woman in reference to child sex crimes.

A press release from the Cooper County Sheriff's office says during the course of the search warrant, Brady S. Anton was taken into custody in the area of West End Street, on a Grand Jury Indictment charging her with:

- Three counts of 1st Degree Statutory Sodomy - Deviate sexual intercourse
- Two counts 1st Degree of Child Molestation 
- Two counts of Enticement of a Child

Anton's bond is set at $150,000 cash or surety and $25,000 cash only.

The Cooper County Sheriff says the charges stem from an ongoing investigation of reported illegal contact between Anton and underage children in the Boonville area between 2010 and 2013.
