HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Four Hannibal residents were arrested Monday after police reportedly found them in a vehicle with a loaded AR-15.

Arrested were:

º Markeleous T. Woodson, 18, on charges of possession of a controlled substance, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful use of a weapon.

º Ethan A. Williams, 18, on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of liquor as a minor.

º Brianna E. Riccitelli, 18, on charges of manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.

º Hannah P. Darling, 18, on charges of two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Hannibal Police Department said officers were called Monday afternoon to the 500 block of Head Lane regarding suspicious activity. Police said the caller also told police they heard what they believed to be a weapon being "racked."

When officers arrived, they contacted a vehicle leaving the area and found the four who reportedly had a loaded AR-15 and a large quantity of what was believed to be marijuana packaged for sale.

Woodson was taken to the Marion County Jail on a 24-hour hold, and the others were released pending review by the Marion County prosecuting attorney's office.
