HANNIBAL, Mo. — A Hannibal man was arrested Thursday and is in the Marion County Jail facing multiple drug charges.

The Tenth Judicial Circuit Court of Marion County issued warrants on Thursday, June 27, for Michael T. Brown, 49. He was charged with delivery of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence and two counts of possession of a controlled substance. Those charges stem from Brown’s arrest that began early Thursday morning.

Brown had a felony warrant out of Illinois for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, a case developed by the West Central Illinois Task Force. He also had an outstanding felony warrant from Marion County for unlawful possession of a firearm. Officers assigned to the Anti-Crime Enforcement Unit attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a vehicle Brown was driving. Brown attempted to evade officers while throwing items believed to be methamphetamine, cocaine and hallucinogenic drugs out of the window. Brown stopped without incident, and the items thrown from the vehicle were recovered.

Brown’s bond for possession of a firearm was $10,000. The bond on his new charges was set at $100,000.
