How Many Law Enforcement Agencies Does it to Take to Prosecute One Man for Buying $200 Worth of Crack?


A Cedar Rapids lawyer was sentenced today to 15 days in jail and one year of supervised release for buying $200 worth of crack cocaine late last year. Stanley Roush will also have to pay a $2,500 fine and $250 in court fees. 

Roush was seen leaving a drug buy in November. Officers stopped him in a gas station parking lot. Roush claimed he had swallowed the crack, but officers found it behind the driver's seat.

Apparently, putting Roush away for two whole weeks required the cooperation of nearly every law enforcement agency in the state of Iowa, per the WCF Courier

The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Justin Lightfoot and investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Task Force consisting of the DEA; the Linn County Sheriff's Office, the Cedar Rapids Police Department; the Marion Police Department; the Iowa City Police Department; the Clinton Police Department; the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; the Sixth Judicial District Department of Correctional Services; and the Iowa National Guard.
