Two Ottumwa residents are facing drug charges after a friday night search of a home at 201 Albany St. Shane Williams Capps, 34, and Ryan Whitley Yancey, 28, were both arrested and charged with possession with the intent to deliver more than 5 grams of meth, a class B felony. Both are being held in the Wapello County Jail with a scheduled bond on $100,000.

The Ottumwa Police Department, Wapello County SHeriff’s Office, Iowa Department of Public Safety Division of Narcotics Enforcement, United States Postal Inspection Service, and the SE Iowa Inter-Agency Drug Task Force all assisted in the investigation and raid.

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