CEDAR RAPIDS – Federal and local law enforcement rounded up Iowa meth druggies, searched a dozen locations and arrested multiple individuals in a sting this week.

On July 27 and July 28, 2020, law enforcement officers executed twelve search warrants in the Northern and Southern Districts of Iowa. Search warrants were executed in Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Roland, and Marshalltown, Iowa. As a result of the investigation and the execution of the search warrants, three people were charged with methamphetamine trafficking and arrested pursuant to arrest warrants issued in the Northern District of Iowa.

The Indictment alleges that, between on or about January 2019 and on or about July 2020, Bobbey Dean Robey, Travis Charles Werkmeister, and Genaro Aguilar Lemus conspired to distribute methamphetamine. All three appeared today in federal court in Cedar Rapids. If convicted, each faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, a $10,000,000 fine, and at least five years of supervised release following any imprisonment.­

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ashley Corkery and investigated as part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program of the United States Department of Justice through a cooperative effort of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, the Tri-County Drug Task Force, the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force, the Iowa Counter Drug Task Force, and the Central Iowa Drug Task Force.
