County Auditor Arrested on Drug Charges

Monona County, IOWA --- Today, 27 year old Brooke Kuhlmann was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Kuhlmann was observed by law enforcement retrieving a quantity of methamphetamine after unknowingly scheduling a purchase and pick-up with a State Trooper who had seized a dealer’s phone on Sunday, July 28, 2013.  Shortly after Kuhlmann retrieved the drugs, Onawa police executed a traffic stop and she was taken into custody for questioning.

After her arrest, Kuhlmann was released from custody on a promise to appear.

Ms. Kuhlmann currently serves as the Monona County Auditor.

The Iowa State Patrol, Onawa Police Department and Division of Narcotics Enforcement assisted in this investigation.

It should be noted a criminal charge is merely an accusation and all suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
