Sibley, Iowa — The case against a Bigelow, Minnesota man who faced a serious felony drug delivery charge — has been dismissed.

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that one of their deputies arrested 45-year-old Raul Flores Marin of Bigelow on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, on a charge of Possession with Intent to Deliver More Than Five Grams of Methamphetamine, a Class B Felony; and Carrying Weapons, an Aggravated Misdemeanor. Class B felonies are the second-most serious crimes in Iowa and Iowa code says the penalty for such crimes is 25 years in prison.

They say the arrest stemmed from the report of a suspicious vehicle at a rural home, which resulted in a traffic stop at 190th Street and Nettle Avenue, a mile south and two west of Sibley.

Osceola County Attorney Nolan McGowan recently moved to dismiss the case. Judge David Lester granted the motion, and the case was dismissed.

We asked McGowan about the case but he stated that his office does not comment “on pending litigation.”
