Lakeside Man Arrested on Drug-Related Charges

A Lakeside man was arrested on drug-related charges in Storm Lake late last week.

While conducting a foot patrol at the 1405 North Seneca Street apartment complex on Friday afternoon, Storm Lake Police allegedly encountered a man in the hallway area who was emitting a strong odor of marijuana. The man, later identified as 18-year-old Arun Keyanye, fled from officers on foot after they attempted to make contact with him. Police located Keyanye behind a residence in the 11-hundred block of Erie Street, where he was taken into custody without incident. Keyanye allegedly discarded items in a shed behind a residence, which police found to contain over a half pound of marijuana and packaging materials.

Keyanye was charged with Possession of Marijuana With Intent to Deliver and Tax Stamp Violation, both class D felonies…and Interference With Official Acts, a simple misdemeanor. Keyanye was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail on a ten-thousand 300-dollar bond.
