Two people who arrived at the home during the search were arrested.

Heather M. Copas, 37 of Clear Lake, is charged with three counts of possession of drugs with intent to deliver and a drug tax stamp violation. Joshua Debower, 26 of Clear Lake, is facing one count of misdemeanor possession of meth.

“The search warrant was the culmination of a detailed and long investigation,” says Clear Lake Police Captain Mike Colby. “We could have not successfully completed this case without assistance from the North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force.”

Copas remains in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $45,000 cash only bond.
