Spencer Drug Investigation
December 18, 2015
Two Emmetsburg residents face multiple narcotic violations following a lengthy investigation conducted by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.
Monday evening, Clay County Deputies stopped 27-year-old John Steffens and 52-year-old Susan Rice in the Spencer Wal-Mart parking lot. Steffens was arrested immediately and taken into custody, initially charged with driving under suspension. Police discovered multiple pieces of stolen property, including precursors for the manufacture of meth.
Additional searches of Rice’s vehicle and their residence turned up meth lab related item, precursors, drug paraphernalia, and stolen property. Steffens and Rice were then charged with two counts of possession of precursors… sale or manufacture of meth… possession of drug paraphernalia… and open container of alcohol. Both were jailed on ten-thousand dollar bonds.
The investigation is continuing and additional arrests in multiple counties are expected. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Palo Alto, Humboldt and Kossuth County Sheriff’s Offices… the Emmetsburg Police Department… the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement and Criminal Investigation… and the Clay County Attorney’s Office.
