Lincoln County Detectives with the Multi-County Narcotics and Violent Crime Enforcement Unit received information of possible narcotic distribution from a residence along the first block of White Road, in Lincoln County.

When detectives arrived, they identified 39-year-old Ryan York and 36-year-old Forrest Martin, both of Elsberry, as the residents of the home. York and Martin gave detectives consent to search the residence.

Detectives discovered 34 grams of methamphetamine, 4 grams of fentanyl, multiple prescription pills, micro bags, scales, drug paraphernalia and a .22 caliber rifle.
