KEOKUK – The Lee County Narcotics Task Force reports the arrest of a former Keokuk, Iowa woman on a misdemeanor drug charge.
Sandra Minter, 31, of Oquawka, Illinois was arrested on April 21, 2017 on a misdemeanor drug charge. Minter is charged with Maintaining a Drug House, an aggravated misdemeanor. If convicted, Minter faces up to 2 years in a state correctional facility.

The Lee County Attorney’s Office, Keokuk Police Department, Iowa State Penitentiary K9 unit, and the Tactical Response Unit comprised of Fort Madison and Keokuk police officers assisted the Lee County Narcotics Task Force in this investigation.
The defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
