Warrant Search Ends With Hawarden Couple Facing Multiple Felony Charges

Hawarden, Iowa — A Hawarden couple are in jail following the execution of a search warrant at a Hawarden residence over the weekend.

Sioux County authorities say 38-year-old Kyle Fassett and 29-year-old Jessica Fassett are each charged with one count of possession of between five grams and five kilograms of methamphetamine, which is a Class B Felony; failure to affix a drug tax stamp, which is a Class D Felony; and possession of marijuana (1st offense), which is a Serious misdemeanor.

Hawarden Police say the charges stem from the execution of a search warrant at the Fassetts’ residence on Avenue E in Hawarden. During their search, police allegedly discovered and seized more than 170 grams of methamphetamine, more than 20 grams of marijuana, along with pipes, needles, syringes, scales and packaging materials, along with more than seven grams of methamphetamine with no Drug Tax Stamp affixed to it.

According to court records, the residence where the search warrant was executed and the contraband allegedly discovered, is within one thousand feet of Doty Park in Hawarden, which allows for the potential enhancement of penalties handed down by a judge, if the defendants are convicted.

At last report, Kyle and Jessica Fassett were both being held in the Sioux County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond each.
