MASON CITY - A Rockford man was arrested for possessing meth with intent to deliver in Mason City.
Andrew Ray Lukes, 37, is charged with felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, failure to affix drug tax stamp, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with official acts.
At about 5:22 p.m. Monday, Lukes was arrested by Mason City Police at the intersection of East State Street and South Delaware Avenue in a 2001 silver Pontiac Bonneville.
Lukes was found in possession of a baggie containing 8.5 grams of methamphetamine without a tax stamp, a silver scale and multiple smaller baggies, according to court documents.
Police allegedly found a purple Crown Royal bag inside the car containing two glass pipes used to smoke methamphetamine.
Lukes is also accused of resisting arrest. Court documents said he pulled away from the arresting officer and “was trying to walk away."
He was booked in Cerro Gordo County Jail where he is held on a $25,000 bond.
Lukes is scheduled to appear May 25 in Cerro Gordo County District Court. He pleaded not guilty to interference with official acts and possession of drug paraphernalia. A non-jury trial is set for Nov. 15.
