PALMYRA, Mo. — Two Palmyra residents are facing multiple charges after their arrest on Tuesday.

Officers with the Palmyra Police Department and East Central Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at 6:20 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 625 W. Main Cross. Nikolas Bennett, 33, and Tanya Bueno, 33,  occupants of the home, were taken into custody and transported to the Marion County Jail. They were placed on a 24-hour hold on multiple charges.

The investigation that led to the search warrant was based on information gathered by the Palmyra Police Department over the course of several weeks. The suspects were believed to be in possession of items stemming from burglaries and identity thefts from multiple jurisdictions.  

During the search, officers located items that were taken in burglaries in Palmyra and Quincy, Ill. Officers also found methamphetamine and a handgun inside the residence.

The Division of Family Services was called for two minor children who were in the house. The children were released to a family friend pending a DFS investigation.

Bueno was released on Wednesday, Oct. 5, pending charges being filed by the Marion County prosecutor.  Bennett was released to Clark County Sheriff’s Department on a warrant. He also has several warrants out of Adams County, Ill. Bennett also will have charges pending in Marion County resulting from the Palmyra Police Department’s investigation.
