A weekend traffic stop has resulted in the arrest of a north Iowa man on multiple drug charges.
The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office says a vehicle was pulled over on Highway 63 near the intersection with Highway 3 at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, when a deputy noticed the car’s license plate did not match the vehicle’s registration information. The driver was identified as 33-year-old Nathan Williams of Independence and he was arrested after his driver’s license status was discovered to be barred for habitual offender, revoked for OWI test refusal and suspended for habitual violator and non-payment of Iowa fines.
Upon further investigation, the sheriff’s office K9, Mo, gave a positive indication to the presence of illegal narcotic odor coming from the vehicle. A vehicle search located 60.69 grams of methamphetamine, multiple plastic baggies, a digital scale and a glass smoking pipe.
Williams was then additionally charged with intent to deliver more than 5g but less than 5kg of methamphetamine, a class B felony, failure to affix drug tax stamp, a class D felony, plus, possession of drug paraphernalia, fraudulent use of registration and failure to provide proof of financial liability, all simple misdemeanors. His bond was set at $100,000.
