MASON CITY, Iowa – The search of a home Tuesday afternoon leads to an arrest and the discovery of what authorities call a “large amount” of drugs.
The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office searched a home in the 200 block of North Jefferson Avenue and took Jeffrey David Determan, 56, into custody on an outstanding federal warrant for violating terms of his supervised release. Determan was sentenced in 2003 in Cedar Rapids Federal Court to 10 years in prison, followed by eight years of supervised release, for drug crimes.
While searching the home, the Sheriff’s Office says it found methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
The Clear Lake Police Department, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, Mason City Police Department, North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force, the Task Force’s Special Operations Group, and the U.S. Marshals all assisted with this investigation, which is continuing.
