Four people are arrested as part on an investigation into firearms stolen from vehicles in Cole County.

It was last Wednesday when deputies served a search warrant at a home on Livingston Street, just north of Memorial Park.  During the execution of the warrant, deputies uncovered a large amount of marijuana, multiple firearms violations were identified, and several individuals were identified as having outstanding arrest warrants.

Scott Howell, Jr., 26, of Jefferson City, is facing federal charges related to the investigation, including drug possession with the intent to distribute and three weapons offenses. 

Three others were arrested at the home, two for outstanding warrants, the third for receiving stolen property.
