A report just released by the Ottumwa Police Department shows the task force participated in the execution of 44 search warrants and seized 2 methamphetamine labs.

During the year the unit initiated 37 distribution cases, conducted 7 manufacture investigations and 5 possession cases.  In addition, the Drug Task Force made 3 case referrals involving 32 individuals to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for federal prosecution.

Investigators filed a total of 171 charges against 103 individuals.

The Southeast Iowa Inter-Agency Drug Task Force is funded in part by a federal grant………..The Edward Bryne grant program.
