A weekend traffic stop in north Iowa has led to drug charges against a Cedar Rapids man.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy initiated a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Trailblazer for a violation on Highway 150, about one mile north of Fayette, just after 10 p.m. Saturday night. After further investigation and search of the vehicle, the driver, 42-year-old Nathan Stahr, was subsequently arrested for possession of controlled substance – marijuana first offense, and possession of controlled substance – methamphetamine first offense, both serious misdemeanors; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a simple misdemeanor.
Stahr was transported to the Fayette County Jail in West Union.
Just before 5:30 a.m. Saturday, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call of a vehicle in the ditch on C Avenue in the 2000 block, about five miles south of Arlington. After further investigation, a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado was located in the east ditch where it had rolled onto its side. The truck was unoccupied and is considered a total loss. This accident still remains under investigation.
