Police: Man Drove to Iowa City to Buy $800 Worth of Synthetic Marijuana

  • Photo
IOWA CITY, Iowa - A Keokuk man allegedly told police he drove to Iowa City to buy $800 worth of synthetic marijuana.

According to the Iowa City Police Department, officers pulled over 51-year-old Craig E. Kehler of Keokuk at 10:36 p.m. March 28 after a check of the license plate revealed the registered owner had a suspended license. Police spoke with Kehler, who was shaking, had clenched fists, ground his teeth and appeared high.

A K9 officer was called to the scene and the dog alerted to the vehicle. Police said a search of the truck turned up "numerous" bags of recently purchased synthetic marijuana - such as K2, Spice, and Syn - and pipes.

Kehler told the officers he comes to Iowa City to buy the drugs and uses them daily instead of marijuana because the synthetic drugs won't show up on a urine test, police said. Police said Kehler admitted to spending $800 on synthetic drugs and that it was a "really bad decision" to come to Iowa City to buy drugs.

A drug recognition expert evaluated Kehler and determined he was under the influence of a controlled substance. He was arrested and faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and driving under the influence.
