Marshalltown pair federally indicted on drug charges

Two Marshalltown residents were indicted in federal court for possession and intent to deliver 11 pounds of methamphetamine.

Jeremy Travis Beason, 27 and Tiffany Carol Wagner, 24, were charged with possession of meth with intent to deliver and failure to purchase drug tax stamps.

They were indicted on Nov. 18 by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the United States District Court South District of Iowa.

Two Minnesota residents were also indicted in federal court. Rachel Ann Danielson, 41, of St. Paul and Michael Roy March, 42, of Mankato face the same charges as Beason and Wagner. An estimated 11 pounds of methamphetamine was seized during a drug task force operation which targeted a Marshalltown home.

A search warrant was first executed at 1429 W. Linn St. where approximately 6.5 pounds of ice methamphetamine was seized as well as evidence of drug use and significant distribution. Beason and Wagner were arrested on site.

Drug task force agents located suspected co-conspirators Danielson and Marsh in the parking lot of Prairie Meadows Casino in Altoona where an additional 4.5 pounds of ice methamphetamine were seized.

The Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force was assisted by the Marshalltown Police Department and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

Marshall County Sheriff Steve Hoffman said the 11 pounds of meth had a street value near $250,000, depending on distribution methods.

In addition to the methamphetamine, a small quantity of marijuana, a 2007 BMW automobile and an undetermined amount of cash was also seized, he said.
