Four Hannibal residents were arrested on June 20 as part of an ongoing narcotics investigation.

Authorities say a search warrant was executed on a residence in the 2800 block of Marion St. by the Hannibal Police Department's Anti-Crime Enforcement Squad. Methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were reportedly found.

The four suspects arrested were:

  • Terry Beadle, 49 of Hannibal, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), endangering the welfare of a child, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and municipal warrants. A parole detainer was issued.
  • Dexter Winningham, 33 of Hannibal, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), endangering the welfare of a child, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and municipal warrants.
  • Tamara Winningham, 29 of Hannibal, endangering the welfare of a child, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Scott Emery, 26 of Hannibal, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Beadle was taken to the Marion County Jail. Dexter Winningham, Tamara Winningham, and Emery were released pending charges. Children that were in the home were placed in protective custody of other family members.

The arrests occurred two days after five other Hannibal residents were arrested in the 2400 block of Chestnut St. Police say methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were also found when a search warrant was executed at that address on June 18.
