10:30 a.m. Tuesday UPDATE: Emery surrendered himself to the Carter County Sheriff's Office and is in their custody at this time.
CARTER COUNTY — A rural Ellsinore man is wanted on several drug charges and charges of stealing after a search of his residence last month reportedly turned up several stolen off-road vehicles, firearms, methamphetamine and marijuana.
David Emery of rural Ellsinore is charged with the Class C felony of manufacturing a controlled substance, two Class D felonies of possession of a controlled substance, four Class D felonies of stealing a firearm, explosive weapon or ammonium nitrate and five Class D felonies of stealing a motor vehicle, aircraft or watercraft.
Members of the Carter County Sheriff’s Office and South-Central Drug Task Force, with assistance from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, U.S. Park Service, Missouri Department of Conservation and Van Buren Police Department, served a search warrant at a residence located on Carter County Road 222 in the unincorporated portion of Carter County known as Hunter on the morning of Aug. 26.
As a result of the search, law enforcement officers allegedly located methamphetamine and an unlicensed marijuana grow operation. Law enforcement also recovered one UTV which was reported stolen in Carter County, one UTV which was reported stolen in Stoddard County, one UTV which was reported stolen in Shannon County, one ATV which was reported stolen in Butler County and one ATV which was reported stolen in Reynolds County. There were also three firearms recovered, which had also been reported stolen.
Charges were filed with the Carter County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and a subsequent warrant was issued on Sept. 2, by Carter County Associate Circuit Judge Steven Lynxwiler, for Emery on the above charges.
The warrant for Emery’s arrest is still outstanding. Anyone who knows Emery’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Carter County Sheriff’s Office at 573-323-4510.
