Three arrested on various drug charges

CENTERVILLE — On Thursday, May 13 the South Central Iowa Drug Task Force served a search warrant at 1913 South Main St. in Centerville. The search warrant was issued as part of an ongoing investigation into the delivery and possession of controlled substances.

During the search warrant officers seized cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, United States currency and other items conducive to the possession and or distribution of controlled substances. 

 As a result of the search warrant three individuals were arrested and charged with multiple narcotics violations. 

Cory Reed McCoy, 21, of Blakesburg, was charged with delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, cocaine, to a person under the age of 18, a class B felony, possession with intent to deliver a schedule II controlled substance, cocaine, a class C felony and possession with intent to manufacture a schedule I controlled substance, marijuana, a class D felony.

Levi Patrick Bryan, 19, of Centerville was charged with possession with intent to deliver a schedule II controlled substance, cocaine, a class C felony and possession with intent to manufacture a schedule I controlled substance, marijuana, a class D felony.

Andrea Jean Kincaid, 17, of Cincinnati was charged with delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, cocaine, a class C felony and delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, hydrocodone, a class C felony.

Chief of Police Tom Demry stated, “The use of drugs continues to be on the rise among our junior high and high school children. We are seeing drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription medication on a more frequent basis being used by our youth.” 

Chief Demry went on to say that parents, relatives and those connected with kids need to be aware of this problem and do their part to help stop this problem. Parents must keep their prescription medication in a secure location. 

“We must all pay attention to changes in behavior and relationships that may give clues to drug use” Chief Demry said. 

Local law enforcement will continue to target those persons that distribute narcotics to children.  “We are taking this situation serious and would ask that everyone in our community do the same.”  A conviction of delivery of a controlled substance to a person under the age of 18 carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years in prison without parole. 

McCoy and Bryan are currently being held in the Appanoose County Jail with a bond set at $135,000 cash only for McCoy and $60,000 cash only for Bryan. Kincaid is currently being held in the Lee County Juvenile Detention Facility awaiting a hearing on Monday, May 17. 

Assisting the drug task force with the investigation and search warrant was the Centerville Police Department, Appanoose County Sheriff’s Office and the Appanoose County Attorney.   

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
