OTTUMWA — The charge listed on the police reports was possession with intent to deliver more than five grams of methamphetamine. What it didn’t say was just how much more than five grams it was.
Court documents say Anthony Davis, 35, Ottumwa, failed to stop when police tried to pull him over, then tried to run after crashing. When police caught him, they found a black fanny pack with “numerous plastic baggies, syringes, pills, a digital scale, and two baggies of methamphetamine.”
Specifically, 59.5 grams of methamphetamine. The criminal complaint described it as “not consistent with personal use.”
The charge is a Class B felony, which means it carries up to 25 years in prison. Davis also faces charges of failure to affix a drug tax stamp and driving while barred. He posted a $32,000 surety bond and was released, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 24.
