Drug Task Force Busts Two Brothers and Girlfriend In Wentzville

Detectives said the two brothers had been subjects in a narcotics investigation.

Two brothers and a woman face drug and gun charges after St. Charles County Drug Task Force detectives searched their Wentzville homes Nov. 20.

  • Fabrian Jones, 27, of the 1400 block of Coco Place in Wentzville, was charged Nov. 20 with unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful use of drug-related items.
  • Farrell Jones, 21, also of the 1400 block of Coco Place, was charged Nov. 20 with distributing a controlled substance, possessing a controlled substance, and unlawful use of drug-related items. He lives in an apartment near Fabrian Jones.
  • Amanda Kay Tunison, 33, also of the 1400 block of Coco Place, was charged with unlawful use of drug-related items. Tunison shares an apartment with Fabrian Jones.

During a narcotics investigation, Drug Task Force detectives found a loaded pistol, spoons and numerous plastic bags with heroin residue in Fabrian Jones and Tunison’s residence, according to a report.

Fabrian Jones is not allowed to own a firearm due to a conviction for distributing and possessing controlled substances in 2011. He was given a suspended sentence in the 2011 conviction.

Jones also was wanted in Berkeley for filing a false police report.

In Farrell Jones’ apartment, detectives said they found ½ gram of heroin pre-packaged for sale in a small, knotted bag and a small amount of marijuana and paraphernalia, including a digital scale, spoons for heating heroin, cut straw to use as a filter, and empty capsules.

Tunison told detectives that a friend told her that police were coming to her home.

Cottleville Police Chief Scott Lewis, who leads the St. Charles County Drug Task Force, said the tip likely came because someone suspected the three were being investigated.

He said he couldn’t say whether the tip impacted the amount of drugs found in the homes because “it would be speculation.”

Lewis said the heroin in Farrell Jones’ apartment was found hidden behind a refrigerator and was pre-packaged for sale.

Bond was set at $20,000 each, cash only, for Fabrian and Farrell Jones. Bail for Tunison was set at $2,000, cash only.

Look i dont appreciate people talking about my sister like she is a criminal. she was in a messed up situatuatiion doing what she could to get out of it. She had nothing to do with what was going on. She worked 6 days a week and took care of her kids very well. She should not be blamed for something she had no control over. I feel like if the police were investigating the situation correctly they would know that. So why dont everyone get their facts straight before they start bad mouthing a person.

She was only charged with unlawful use of drug-related items (probably a misdemeanor). What more do you want? She was living in a drug house in a very bad part of town.

Your son died because He made the choice to use drugs. No ones fault but his lady!!!! Maybe if you were a better mother he wouldnt have abused drugs, especially heroin. What a choice to choose.... Smh sorry for your loss but be real.

What a crock E. You re saying her son died because he chose to do drugs then turning around and trying to blame his mom which makes even less sense. Sounds like you re a low life incapable of accepting responsiblitiy yourself.

If i were you CINDY id contact the police. These guys will get a much harsher sentence if their drugs can be linked to your sons death. How can someone think these guys arent responsible when they are making a living off helping people destroy their lives or kill themselves because they dont want to be a man and get a real job like the rest of the normal world.
