Local trio hit with drug charges

Police arrested three Marshalltown residents on drug charges Saturday after a patrol officer spotted the trio driving without their headlights on.

Following the traffic stop, the officer arrested Ryan Chaplin, 32, Alexis Mathews, 19, and Gordon Riendeau, 23.

Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department, said Chaplin tried to swallow a packet of drugs when police approached his car. He also resisted arrested.

Chaplin is charged with possession of less than a gram of meth and less than gram of marijuana, both Class D felonies because of enhancement for prior charges, interference with official acts, for attempting to conceal evidence and resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, both simple misdemeanors.

The officer also cited Chaplin for driving without a license and not having insurance.

Mathews was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia for having a meth pipe and possession of less than one gram of marijuana.

The third passenger, Riendeau, allegedly has a syringe for using drugs in his possession; consequently, he was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police made details of the arrest available Tuesday.
