Drug and Weapons Charges

On 11/3/22 at 12:56 hours the Mt Pleasant Police Department investigated a drug complaint in the 200 block of W Franklin St (dirt lot behind McKibben Hall) in Mt Pleasant involving 4 individuals in a vehicle. A  search of the vehicle resulted in marijuana and a pistol being located. The pistol was later found to be stolen from Mt Pleasant earlier this fall. As a result of the investigation, all four subjects were charged with Possession of Marijuana. They were identified as Jaylin Randa, age 20 of Coralville, Iowa and Iowa Wesleyan University students Jaxon Lay age 19, Cordelris Neely age 18, Alvis Johnson age 19. Alvis Johnson was also charged with Trafficking Stolen Weapons. Johnson and Lay were arrested and transported to the Henry County Jail and the others were issued summons to court.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
