Iowa Man Arrested with Numerous Drugs in Boscobel

The Boscobel Police Department has released details on an incident that happened July 10th just before 3AM, where an intoxicated male was laying face down in the parking lot of a business.  He showed multiple signs of impairment, including the observation that he was not wearing any pants or shorts. Boscobel EMS was called to evaluate the man, identified as 26-year-old, Samuel Phillips of Leon, Iowa. Officers located Mr. Phillip’s shorts, and inside the pockets they discovered a glass smoking device with a white crystalline residue, and an unlabeled prescription bottle with approximately 200 pills. The residue in the glass smoking device was field tested and indicated positive for methamphetamine. The pill bottle was found to contain various narcotics and barbiturates. Phillips was transported to the Grant County Jail where he was booked in on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Narcotic Drugs, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

A subsequent investigation was conducted at a local hotel where Phillips had reserved a room and intended to spend the night. That investigation revealed that he was in possession of many additional drugs, including Fentanyl, Marijuana, Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, and Oxycodone. As a result the department has referred additional charges to the Grant County District Attorney, to include the possession of Fentanyl, Crack Cocaine, Marijuana, and Drug Possession with Intent to Deliver.
