Woman faces drug charge

Authorities have accused a Central City woman of possession of methamphetamines.

Patrice Brisbin, 26, was charged with a controlled-substance violation on Nov. 3, 2014.

According to online court documents, the Johnson County Drug Task Force was requested to assist in processing a suspected marijuana/methamphetamine lab.

Johnson County deputies had contact with three suspects, including Brisbin, in relation to a stolen vehicle.

The stolen vehicle was searched, and deputies reportedly found a bag containing a mixture of camping fuel, lithium, ammonium nitrate, and pseudoephedrine.

An analysis by the Division of Criminal Investigation crime lab reportedly confirmed the mixture contained methamphetamine.

Controlled-substance violation is a Class-B felony.

Man charged with robbery

Authorities have accused a man with breaking into a home and stealing money.

Iviontae Jackson, 20, was charged with first-degree robbery on July 31, 2014.

According to online court documents, Jackson and an accomplice allegedly entered the residence and confronted a male in the bedroom.

Jackson reportedly hit the male in the head with a gun and punched him several times in the face, according the documents.

Jackson and his accomplice allegedly both had guns pointing at the male.

They went through his pockets and stole $120 and a pack of cigarettes.

Jackson then pushed a female onto her young child, police allege, which caused damage to the child’s leg, and fought the female before leaving.

The male later identified Jackson in a photo lineup.

First-degree robbery is a Class-B felony.
