Starr G. Cure, 45, of Creston, was taken into custody 3:30 p.m. Feb. 8 at the Union County Law Enforcement Center on a Union County warrant for the charges of failure to affix drug stamp; possession of a controlled substance - marijuana, first offense; controlled substance violation - possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver methamphetamine, over 5 grams.

According to a Creston Police report, at approximately 12:17 p.m. Oct. 4, officers observed a truck known to be operated by a wanted person parked in a driveway of a residence in the 1100 block of North Maple Street.

The truck backed out of the driveway and immediately pulled back in after seeing the patrol unit. Officers pulled to near the end of the driveway and approached the truck. The wanted person was observed through the windshield, standing in front of the truck and was taken into custody.

Officers detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the truck through closed windows and doors. The driver of the truck, identified as Cure, requested her purse from the truck before it was impounded.

Officers completed a probable cause search of her purse and located two baggies containing 6.75 grams and 1.75 grams of methamphetamine and a rolled marijuana blunt in the purse. The Iowa DCI Crime Lab provided a drug chemistry report Jan. 18, confirming the findings.

Cure was transported to the Union County Jail where she was released from after posting $31,000 cash or approved surety bond.
