The Fayette County Sheriff has filed charges against 2 area residents, stemming from an incident that happened earlier this month.

Shortly after 4pm on Thursday, June 6th, officers arrested 2 Cedar Rapids residents, who came to the Fayette County jail in West Union, to visit some inmates.

The 2 eventually became inmates themselves during an investigation: 44 year old Jake Hess was initially busted for Driving While his License is Suspended. While Hess was being booked into the jail, a search of Hess produced a quantity of Methamphetamine; he was then charged with Possession of Controlled Substance (2nd or subsequent offense), and Possessing Contraband in a Detention Facility.

A woman who accompanied Hess was questioned; 43 year old Holly Levelle was also found with methamphetamine, Marijuana edibles and Marijuana Dab in her possession. Levelle was charged with Possession of Controlled Substances.

Hess and Levelle were booked into the Fayette County Jail where they were held for their initial court appearance.
