SIBLEY—A 39-year-old Sheldon man was arrested about 5:05 p.m. Thursday, April 29, near Sibley on charges of two counts of second-offense possession of a controlled substance and carrying weapons.
The arrest of Clinton James Kreykes stemmed from the stop of a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser for speeding in the southbound lane of the Highway 60 expressway north of Sibley, according to the Iowa State Patrol.
Kreykes, a passenger in the vehicle, was recognized for being wanted on a Clay County warrant for failure to appear in court regarding two charges of possession of controlled substance.
A stiletto/switchblade knife was found during a search for weapons.
During transportation, a trooper advised Kreykes it would be a felony for him to take a controlled substance into the jail.
He said he had a few prescription pills in his right pocket but they had fallen out and were on the floorboards.
The trooper located the pills, Clonazepam, which Kreykes did not have a prescription to, according to court documents.
Buprenorphine hydrochloride pills also were located in a small metal cylinder attached to a key chain.
