Laurens Warrant Drug Arrest

Laurens, IA (KICD) — An extended investigation leads to the arrest of a Laurens man.

The Pocahontas County Sheriffs Office says 19-year old Justin Dasilva was arrested Thursday, on an outstanding Pocahontas County warrant, in Fort Dodge.

He was transported back to Pocahontas County to face 2 counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent To Deliver, both class D felonies. The charges stem from law enforcement making two undercover purchases of marijuana from Dasilva, The fact that both were made within 1000 feet of the Laurens School, may enhance the penalties.

Dasilva is being held in the Pocahontas County Jail on a $10,000 bond..
