BURLINGTON – An Iowa man already awaiting punishment for dealing drugs tried to sell an undercover cop a t-shirt of meth and now the vice of justice is tightening upon him.

On April 8, 2024, suspect Byron Giles made contact with an under cover source apparently connected to law enforcement. Narcotic Detectives knew Byron Giles (pictured at top) to be involved in the distribution of methamphetamine in the Burlington area and that he was awaiting sentencing on a previous Delivery of Methamphetamine charge.

In conversations, Giles agreed to sell a t-shirt of methamphetamine for $50. Narcotics detectives are aware “Tshirt” is a slang for 1.75 grams of methamphetamine. Giles advised he lived near Division Street in Burlington, Iowa, and arranged to meet the undercover person in the 1000 block of Division Street in Burlington.

Several detectives were conducting surveillance in this area and observed Giles walk from the area of his residence to the 1000 block of Division Street. There, Giles was approached by detectives. He was detained and read the Miranda rights. Giles advised the dope was in his left pocket. This methamphetamine was in small plastic bag, weighed at 2.32 grams with packaging and field tested positive. Giles was subsequently interviewed at the Burlington Police Department and was asked who he sells methamphetamine to. Giles advised “friends”.

Giles was transported to the Des Moines County Jail and is charged with Possession of Methamphetamine under 5 grams with Intent to Deliver.
