WAVERLY – A Waterloo man was arrested in Waverly after failing to comply with police.
On November 25, 2020 the Waverly Police Department stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop a Waverly Officer observed a substance within the vehicle consistent with a controlled substance in plain view. The driver of the vehicle, identified as 41-year-old Joseph E.
