Hartley, Iowa — A Hartley man is facing a felony narcotics charge after allegedly being found in possession of methamphetamine for the third time.
According to court records, a Hartley police officer was dispatched to a residence in that community early Wednesday afternoon for a report that someone had found methamphetamine that allegedly belonged to 37-year-old Cory Ray Mohni of Hartley. The officer stated he was told by the homeowner that Mohni was in the home’s garage, where the meth had been found.
