CRESCO, Iowa – A second defendant has been sentenced for a Howard County drug bust.
David Lynn Gaul, 58 of Cresco, has entered guilty pleas to maintaining a premise for drug use and possession of methamphetamine, both misdemeanors. Gaul was arrested on December 12, 2017 along with four other people after Cresco police said they searched a home and found meth and six different prescription drugs without a prescription.
Gaul’s sentence is for two days in the Howard County Jail, followed by one to two years of supervised probation, and a $315 fine.
Of the other four arrested:
Billie Jean Hageman of Lime Springs pleaded guilty to possession of meth and possession of amitriptyline and received two years of probation and a $315 fine. She was given a deferred judgment so if she satisfies the terms of her probation, this conviction will be wiped from her record.
Michael Leyton Walters of Cresco is pleading not guilty to gathering where drugs are used and two counts of drug possession. His trial is set to start on July 18.
Lance Aaron Souhrada and Kristie Joe Cobban, both of Cresco, are facing charges from the city of Cresco for possession of drug paraphernalia. Court records state they have not yet entered any pleas.
