Two people have been arrested on drug charges after the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force served a search warrant at a Colfax home.
The warrant was served Wednesday around 5:45 p.m. at 223 South Montgomery. Officials discovered illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia during the search.
Forty-nine-year-old Paul Deaton and 46-year-old Jacqueline Deaton are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, failure to affix drug tax stamp, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jacqueline Deaton also faces charges of possession of Schedule II drug and possession of prescription pills without a prescription.
The Deatons were taken to the Polk County Jail.
Three children under the age of 18 were removed from the home under the Jasper County Drug Endangered Children Program. They’ve been placed in a drug free environment.
