On Monday, agents with the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force served a narcotics search warrant at 104 N. 14th Ave., Marshalltown. A postal package destined for Marshalltown from California was intercepted by law enforcement. This package was found to contain approximately a half pound of ice methamphetamine with a street value of $27,000. As a result of this investigation, one suspect — Oscar Magana, 21 — was arrested and transported to the Marshall County Jail on various criminal drug charges:

• Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance w/intent (methamphetamine), B Felony.

• Possession of Schedule I Controlled Substance (Marijuana), Serious Misdemeanor

• Tax Stamp Violation, D Felony

• Interference with Official Acts, Simple Misdemeanor

Officers seized methamphetamine, marijuana, and U.S. Currency as a result of the search warrant.

Additional arrests are pending as the investigation continues. The Mid Iowa Drug Task Force was assisted with the execution of the search warrant by the Marshalltown Police Department, and the United States Postal Service. The Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force is funded by a grant, through the United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, and the Governor’s Office of Drug Control Policy.
