Couple charged with child endangerment

An Eldora couple face a charge of child endangerment after allegedly taking up residence with a registered sex offender in late 2011.

Police arrested Lee Blouin, 34, and his wife Michelle Stanley, 36, July 19 for allegedly subjecting their 2-year-old son to Russ Mehlow, 42, of Albion, Marshall County Chief Deputy Burt Tecklenburg said.

Mehlow, 42, is on the county's sex offender registry after being arrested in 1996 for assault with the intent to commit sexual abuse.

Tecklenburg said the couple moves often, so tracking their whereabouts proved difficult for sheriff's office deputies.

The couple turned themselves in last week and were released into the custody of the Department of Correctional Services.

Child endangerment without injury is an aggravated misdemeanor.

Man gets intent to distribute charge

Police arrested a local man Friday evening for attempting to sell drugs.

While on patrol, an officer spotted Juan Gonzalez, 41, in the alley on the 10 block of West North Street just after 6 p.m. allegedly selling another man some marijuana, Capt. Mike Hanken, of the Marshalltown Police Department, said. The officer's circling interrupted the transaction.

Police charged Gonzalez with possession of 29 grams marijuana with intent to distribute, a Class D felony. While police caught up with and questioned the suspected buyer, they did not arrest him. Hanken said it does not appear that charges for the suspected buyer are forthcoming.

Gonzalez's bond is set at $5,000. Hanken said the MPD had never previously arrested him on drug charges. An online court document search shows no drug convictions in Iowa.
