By Lee Hermiston, Reporter
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An Iowa City man is accused of having meth and meth-making ingredients in his home.
On February 5, the Johnson County Sheriff's Office served a search warrant at 316 Mosswood Lane, the home of 42-year-old Gus D. Ollinger. Police said a number of items commonly used to make meth, including lithium strips and pseudoephedrine, were seized from the home.
In late July, lab results from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation confirmed that a substance seized from the home was meth.
Police also found marijuana in Ollinger's residence, according to criminal complaints.
Ollinger was arrested this week and faces one count of possession of meth, a class B felony; possession of lithium, a class D felony; possession of pseudoephedrine, a class D felony; possession of marijuana, a serious misdemeanor; and keeping a drug house, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Ollinger is currently in custody in the Muscatine County Jail on a domestic abuse charge. The class B felony alone carries a potential sentence of 25 years in prison.
