FLOYD COUNTY, IOWA – The Floyd county sheriff’s office announced the arrest of an armed Michigan man headed to Mason City possibly to deal heroin.

On December 31, 2018 the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle for speeding, 82 mph in a 65 mph zone on the Avenue of Saints near Charles City. The vehicle was enroute to Mason City.

During the stop, a deputy sheriff located a loaded .45 caliber handgun on the passenger seat. A subsequent search revealed a softball- sized amount of heroin. As a result, Keith Tucker, 50 of Detroit, MI was arrested.
Tucker was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin and possession of contraband in a correctional facility after more narcotics were located.

He has now been indicted in Cedar Rapids Federal Court for conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin, possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, and possession of a firearm as a drug user.

State charges will be dismissed as the case moves forward in Federal Court.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement.

    Should have taken the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE free bus ride they are offering from chitcago/deadtroit to Mason on the Greyhounder – all expenses paid and a Iowa welfare check waiting for them – Illinois and Michigan are broke because of their welfare programs – but because Iowans want to work we have a surplus – the democraps know this and just transfers them to Iowa rural communities as they also do with illegal aliens. MAGA – BUILD THE WALL !

    So, how hard is it to go arrest. the rest of the “d boys”. Obviously they are trying to setup a new franchise. How many lives do you think a softball sized amount of heroin can ruin. People need to band together and run the d boys out of town at least and preferably out of our state. Disgusting that anyone tolerates them.

    Thanks section 8 program. If you let you kids mingle with the offspring of Detroit and Chicago you can expect them to end up dead or in jail. Mason city has heroin? Have a sick feeling we will be longing for the good old days of Mason cities meth epidemic now that we are apparently about to have a heroin epidemic instead. Go home African American males, society suffers your existence.

    It’s to bad that he didn’t put up a fight and had to be exterminated.
