The execution of two search warrants in New London results in four arrests Wednesday.

Ralls County Chief Deputy Ronald Haught reports deputies, New London Police and East Central Drug Task Force agents executed the warrants simultaneously.

The first warrant yielded a substance believed to be heroin. An investigation led to the arrests of 33 year old Barron Horton and 37 year old Sabrina Thomas, both of New London.

The second warrant revealed substances believed to be methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription narcotics and ecstasy. That investigation resulted in the arrests of 64 year old Larry Faulkner of New London and 50 year old Chester Rickey of St. Louis.

All four were taken into custody on a 24-hour hold, pending the formal filing of charges.
