A Fort Madison man faces up to 14 years in prison for felony drug and gun charges.
The Lee County Narcotics Task Force said police arrested 21-year-old Mario Montez Trotter October 25th in the 900 block of Johnson Street in Keokuk on felony and misdemeanor drug and firearm charges.
The task force said Trotter had marijuana and a schedule four controlled substance and was planning on delivering those drugs while he had a gun on him. The Iowa Board of Pharmacy web site lists schedule four substances as narcotics combined with other non-narcotic drugs, antidiarrheals, mild CNS depressants, mild CNS stimulants, and tranquilizers.
The task force said Trotter was arrested after a Keokuk police officer stopped his vehicle and Trotter got out and ran. The officer caught up with him and said he found evidence on Trotter supporting the charges.
