GARNER | A Klemme man who allegedly had methamphetamine, a revolver and a scale in his car when it was stopped in rural Garner faces felony charges. 

Jacob Dean Ganseveld, 26, will be arraigned Feb. 5 on charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of a firearm by a felon and failure to affix a drug tax stamp. 

He was arrested on Jan. 6 in the 2100 block of Vail Avenue. 

When Ganseveld was stopped for multiple traffic violations at 12:15 p.m., a police K-9 indicated the presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle he was driving, according a Hancock County Sheriff's Office criminal complaint. 

A search of the vehicle allegedly yielded more than 8 grams of a substance that appeared to be methamphetamine in multiple plastic bags, a digital scale, syringes and a revolver with the serial number removed. 

Ganseveld was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison in February 2017 on Cerro Gordo County convictions of methamphetamine dealing and theft. 

He returned to the community on work release status in November 2017 and has been on parole supervision since Feb. 5, 2018, according to court documents. 

Ganseveld was given a suspended prison sentence and probation for a Winnebago County conviction of felony forgery shortly before he was sent to prison on the Cerro Gordo County charges.

He now faces possible probation revocation in the Winnebago County case.
