The target of a large Cole County drug bust is charged in federal court.
Prosecutors say 21-year-old Emmanuel Guillen of Russellville learned about the charges Monday in Jefferson City. The Mexican national faces one count of meth possession with intent to distribute, and another of being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm.
SWAT team members found 21 guns at Guillen’s home during a search Thursday, along with 632 grams of meth, and $15,000 in cash. The drugs have an estimated street value of $82,000.
