A Tama man was arrested twice within 10 days for possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

Bear was driving 80 mph when he was pulled over, according to a press release from the Marshall County Sheriff's Office. A Marshall County Sheriff's deputy searched his car and found about a pound of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and $900 in cash.
