Patrol say Iowa police officer had meth

Posted:

DES MOINES (AP) -- Authorities say a Pleasant Hill police officer who faces a drug charge after he crashed his squad car was in possession of methamphetamine.

The allegations are included in documents released Tuesday by the Iowa State Patrol. Authorities haven't said where the drug was found or where it was obtained.

Sgt. Daniel Edwards is charged with misdemeanor drug possession. The charge was filed last Friday, a day after Edwards hit another vehicle east of Des Moines and ended up in a ditch.

Edwards is on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the patrol's investigation.
