SEDALIA - Police said Friday detectives executed a forced-entry, drug-related search warrant and arrested two individuals in Sedalia Thursday.

The Sedalia Police Department said detectives with the Drug Enforcement Unit and Criminal Investigations Bureau, along with patrol officers and a K-9 Unit, executed the search warrant at 801 East 12th St. Officers said entry was forced through the front door of the home. Once inside, officers arrested Samuel D. Woolery, 23, and Chelsea J. Klein, 22, both Sedalia residents.

Police said they found a "significant amount" of cocaine, low and high grade marijuana, marijuana concentrates, drug paraphernalia and drug packaging supplies and materials inside the home. Police said some of the high grade marijuana located during the search originated from dispensaries in Colorado. Officers said they also found evidence Woolery and Klein were were distributing marijuana and cocaine.

Police located over $3,100 cash, which was seized as profit from the drug sales. In addition, police said they found manufacturing equipment and supplies and chemicals to produce marijuana concentrates. Police said they collected hazardous materials and released them to the Sedalia Fire Department for disposal. 

Woolery and Klein were transported to the Pettis County Jail , where they were each being held on multiple charges.

Woolery was being held on a $150,000 bond for drug trafficking in the 2nd degree, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, manufacturing a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Klein was being held on a $50,000 bond for the same charges.
