LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A 71-year-old homeowner is being charged with felony drug possession after police say he and four others were found inside his home with methamphetamine.

On Wednesday, narcotics detectives with the Multi-County Narcotics and Violent Crimes Enforcement Unit received several complaints about narcotics being sold at a home along the 200 block of Maple St. in Hawk Point.

Investigators arrived at the home and asked to speak with the homeowner, 71-year-old John Phillip Vohsen.

Vohsen gave investigators permission to search his house and during the search, detectives found a wooden plank built into a master bedroom wall that led into a hidden opening.

Detectives discovered numerous plastic baggies, including a bag that contained meth and 19 pills of morphine.

Shawn Fincher, 40, Wanda Lenk, 48, Larry Smith, 54, and 58-year-old Roxie Acy were found inside the home at the time of the search.

Fincher was found sleeping with drug paraphernalia and marijuana on him and investigators also discovered he has a warrant out for his arrest in Wentzville.

Police found meth and marijuana inside Lenk and Acy’s purse.

Smith was found in the basement and meth was found on a nightstand near a bed.

All five suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Lincoln County jail.

Vohsen is charged with two counts of felony delivery of a controlled substance.

Shawn Fincher, Wanda Lenk, Larry Smith, and Roxy Acy are all charged with felony drug possession.
