FULTON - The Mid-Missouri Unified Strike Team and Narcotics Group (MUSTANG) Drug Task Force arrested two people after a search warrant in Fulton led investigators to drugs, money and firearms Friday.

Sgt.

He said the task force also found $18,000 in cash, two hand guns, as well as measuring scales and packaging material. Authorities arrested Alan Lawson for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia.
