Two people were arrested and two young children were put in protective custody after an early morning drug bust Thursday.

The Osage County Sheriff's Department and the Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Group searched a home at 2996 Highway 63 South in Westphalia. Officers found meth, suspected marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Two children were also in the home during the search. They were placed in protective custody.

36-year-old Lucas Holterman and 29-year-old Savannah Kubesh were both arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana, and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

Bond was set at $10,000 for both Holterman and Kubesh. Kubesh also was wanted in Pulaski County for driving with a suspended license.

Deputies searched another property that belonged to Holterman and Kubesh between Osage Co. Rd. 632 and Hwy. 63 South. They found marijuana growing and a stolen ATV as well as a stolen motorcycle.

Kubesh was then charged with manufacturing a controlled substance with a $15,000 bond.

Holterman turned himself in Friday, and was released pending charges, while Kubesh posted bond and was released.
