Search warrant at Isabella home turns up stolen items, meth and drug paraphernalia

Warrants with $3,500 cash-only bonds each have been issued for Summer Dawn Luna, 34, and Thomas Stephen Pettit, 53, both of Isabella, in connection with a case of possession of methamphetamine.

According to the probable cause statement prepared by Ozark County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeffrey Lane, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at 6:45 a.m. Aug. 26 at Pettit’s residence on County Road 620 in Isabella, where Luna was also presumably living. A post made by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department in reference to the case identifies Luna as Pettit’s girlfriend. 

The search warrant was issued to aid officers in recovering items reportedly taken during a Douglas County burglary and theft case. Theodosia resident Dalton Woodward has now been charged in that case. 

Pettit and Luna were detained when the officer arrived. Luna was reportedly uncooperative with officers as they attempted to escort her from the home to a patrol vehicle outside. 

“She was not cooperating with verbal commands, along with actively pulling and pushing away from Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase,” the probable cause statement says. 

Douglas County Deputies found several items at the home that matched items that had been reported as stolen from a home in western Douglas County.

Recovered items included an LED light bar that was mounted on a side-by-side that had been stolen, a “sawzall,” a Dewalt drill, a Makita battery powered drill with a bag and sockets, a pipe wrench and an air-impact drill.

While searching the area, Lane also found a small clear bag containing a white crystal substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, a straw and a prescription bottle of pills prescribed to Luna in a dresser drawer. The dresser was filled with women’s clothing. 

More stolen items were also found in the garage, along with a small metal container containing 10 clear pill capsules with a white crystal substance inside. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies field tested the substance, and it also tested positive as methamphetamine.
