FOREST CITY, Iowa – The first sentence is issued in a Winnebago County drug bust.

Isaiah Eugene Craig, 21 of Apple Valley, Minnesota, was sentenced Friday to five years of supervised probation and a $750 civil penalty. In addition, he must complete all recommended substance abuse treatment. Craig also received a deferred judgment, which means this conviction will be removed from his record if he successfully completes his probation.


Jonah Remker

Craig and Jonah Remker, 24 of Owatonna, Minnesota, were arrested in March in Forest City. Police say a search of the apartment they were living in at the time turned up 41 ½ grams of marijuana, $1,865 in cash, pre-rolled marijuana joints, a scale, and multiple baggies.

Craig pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a non-forcible felony.
Remker entered a guilty plea to possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. He is due to be sentenced on December 14.
