The three people involved in a standoff in Monroe County earlier this week have been charged, and more charges could be coming.

Both Steven Alton Brantley, 53, and David Little, 35 – both of Nettleton – and Crystal Deann Adair Bosch, 37, of Tupelo, are all charged with possession of a controlled substance (ICE). Bond for Brantley was set at $1 million, while Little and Bosch had bond set at $20,000 each.

Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said he expects more charges to be filed.

Brantley, Little, and Bosch were arrested after engaging officers in a nine-hour standoff Wednesday at a home at New Road and Highway 371. The ordeal began when an undercover Monroe County deputy allegedly made a drug purchase from Bosch in Amory.

Deputies confiscated drugs, 30 weapons, ammunition, two trailers, 10 vehicles and other equipment from the house.
