Four men and two women from Marshalltown have been arrested following a drug bust, officials said.
The Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force executed three search warrants on Thursday which led to the half a dozen arrests, according to a news release from the Marshall County Sheriff.
Officials seized about three pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a firearm, electronic scales and $1,661 from 107 S. Seventh Ave., 309 W. Nevada St., and 106 W. Nevada St., all in Marshalltown.
A 2-year-old child was found at one of the homes where evidence of drug use and sales was present, according to court documents. The child was removed from the home, officials said.
As police entered the home on Seventh Avenue, a man jumped out of the window and ran away from the property, officials said. The man, Brandon Senethavysouk, was later found hiding under a vehicle down the street.
Justin Senethavysouk, 18, faces charges including felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, and carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor, officials said.
Brandon Senethavysouk,18, and Bounchanh Phetsomphou, 46, face charges including felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
Michelle Senethavysouk, 26, faces charges including felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, and child endangerment, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Raylyn Finders, 28, and Jose Cervantes-Zaragoza, 26, were both charged with marijuana possession, a serious misdemeanor, according to court documents.
More arrests are possible as the investigation continues, officials said. No attorneys were listed for any of the six defendants as of Sunday afternoon.
Marshalltown police, the Tama County Sheriff’s Office and the Marshall County Sheriff’s office assisted the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force in executing the search warrants.
