The vehicle was in the county park after hours and the driver appeared to be asleep. Deputies were able to wake the driver and observed a meth pipe in the vehicle while speaking with him.
Deputies searched the vehicle and located multiple baggies containing suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. The driver was identified as, Levi Joseph Rogers, age 34. of Burlington, IA. Rogers was placed under arrest for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine more than 5 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, fail to affix a drug tax stamp, and driving while barred.

As a reminder, a criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
