MONITEAU COUNTY, MO – An Eldon resident facing felony drug charges is scheduled for a court date Tuesday morning in Moniteau County.

Nicholas, 50, was arrested August last year after a vehicle investigation by deputies in California, Missouri resulted in the seizure of a substantial amount of methamphetamine. Nicholas is to update the court as to the status of his legal representation. He is currently released on his own recognizance.

A second defendant arrested during the same incident, Angela Gagnier, 30, has a hearing scheduled for February.
