NORTH LIBERTY– Two North Liberty residents are now facing multiple drug charges after North Liberty police officers conducted a search of their home.
Dawn Sheri Blaszczyk, 46, of 122 Holiday Lodge Road, North Liberty, was charged with five counts of possession of a controlled substance (third or subsequent) and two counts of child endangerment without injury. Also implicated was Leon Wade Scott, 48, of the same address, who was charged with five counts of possession of a controlled substance (third or subsequent), possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of endangerment without injury.
According to police reports, officers served a narcotics search warrant at 9:28 a.m. on March 28 at the residence. During the search, multiple pipes used for smoking methamphetamine and marijuana were seen in plain view. Officers allgedly found a hidden compartment in the floor of the home’s bedroom, which contained a “drug kit” with numerous items of paraphernalia, including methamphetamine pipes and containers with small amounts of marijuana and marijuana and methamphetamine residue. A tote bag with “dozens of broken glass methamphetamine pipes, burnt foil, etc.” was also located, according to the report. Also found were loose crystal methanphetamine and pills designated as Schedule II, Schedule III and Schedule IV controlled substances, with no matching prescriptions found.
Blaszczyk admitted her 5-year-old and 2-year-old grandchildren live at the residence. The report states that “based on the dozens of pipes and the amount of discarded narcotics packaging, it’s clear drug use has been occuring for a significant period of time. The house is also littered with garbage and rotten food and is very unsanitary.”
