WATERTOWN, S.D.—Codington County Sheriff Brad Howell says two people have been arrested following a report of a theft and trespassing in Henry.

Deputies were dispatched just before noon Tuesday to an address on 172nd Street, where they located 30 year-old Brandon Yankton of Peever and 32 year-old Charlianne Robertson of Webster.

They were driving a car that belonged to a dealership in Waubay that had not been returned.

A search of the vehicle turned up meth, marijuana, a scale, drug paraphernalia, a loaded 38 caliber handgun and other stolen items.

Yankton was arrested on drug charges and being a former violent offender in possession of a firearm. He was on parole for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

Robertson faces numerous drug charges. Both suspects were booked into the Codington County Jail.
