MT. VERNON – An ongoing investigation into drugs in the Mt. Vernon area resulted in the arrests Thursday of two people at a rural Mt. Vernon home.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, around 7 a.m. Thursday, members of the Mt. Vernon Police Department/Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office High Risk Team executed a drug search warrant at 12188 East Oakton Road Lot #1 in rural Mt. Vernon.

The warrant was a result of an ongoing investigation conducted by the MVPD/JCSO Narcotics Unit.

The two primary residents, 35-year-old Antonio T. Foulks and 34-year-old Dana M. Ince, were taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail.

Investigators searched the residence and reportedly discovered evidence that led to both Foulks and Ince being charged with aggravated meth delivery between 15-100 grams, possession of a Schedule 2 substance with intent to deliver and possession of drug equipment – both Class X felonies. Bail remains to be set on those charges.

Foulks also had an active Jefferson County warrant for Class 1 felony criminal sexual assault of a family member involving a MVPD investigation. Bail in that case had been set at $250,000.
