Sheldon, Iowa — A Primghar man faces felony drug charges after a traffic stop north of Sheldon on Saturday morning.
According to statements from the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office contained in criminal complaints filed with the O’Brien County Clerk of Court, 45-year-old Daniel Trevino was stopped in the 3100 mile of L26, about a mile north of Sheldon’s west side. The deputy says Trevino was allegedly found in possession of approximately 112 grams of white crystalline substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as several items of drug paraphernalia including baggies, a digital scale, a large sum of money, and several cell phones. The deputy states that Trevino didn’t appear to have a drug tax stamp or any applicable paperwork.
Trevino was charged with drug trafficking, which is a class B felony in this case; failure to affix a drug tax stamp, a class D felony; and misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance second offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, no insurance, and driving on the wrong side of a two-way highway.
A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11th. At last report, he remained in the O’Brien County Jail in Primghar.
