NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa -- Two people have been charged for allegedly possessing methamphetamine in North Liberty earlier this year.
Michael Thompson of Coralville and Michele Covarrubias of North Liberty both face charges of possession of a controlled substance after the Johnson County drug task force found meth in Covarrubias' residence, according to a criminal complaint.
The complaint states officers were serving a search warrant at 465 Heritage Place in North Liberty on January 10th when Thompson arrived with a co-defendant driving separate vehicles. Both vehicles attempted to leave the area after seeing police activity, but were pulled over, according to the complaint.
Thompson's co-defendant allegedly tossed a back-pack containing meth making materials before being stopped by police.
Thompson and Covarrubias are facing a felony charge in the case. It's not clear why there was a delay in filing charges. Thompson was charged in February for similar drug related activity during a traffic stop, according to KCRG-TV archives.
