Two Savanna men are being held in the Carroll County Jail on drug charges after being arrested Sunday night, April 14, following a traffic stop by Savanna police.
Dustin Partin, 35, and Andrew Westphal, 25, are charged with possession with intent to deliver more than 100 but less than 400 grams of meth, a Class X felony. The charge carries a prison term of six to 30 years.
Partin also is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, a Class 3 felony, which carries a prison term of up to five years.
Both men are in jail on $75,000 bond each.
The public defender has been appointed to represent Westphal and Partin indicated in court Monday that he will retain his own attorney.
A court date for Partin is set for 10 a.m. April 22 and a court date for Westphal is scheduled for 10 a.m. May 3.
Partin and Westphal were arrested around 10:30 p.m. Sunday. According to court records, police recovered 455 grams of meth, a 12-gauge shotgun, a .25 caliber pistol and ammunition, and a pipe bomb.
A search of Partin’s home Monday morning, April 15, turned up 465 more grams of meth, a rifle, ammunition and surveillance equipment, according to a news release from the Savanna Police Department.
The seized meth is valued at more than $90,000, based on meth selling on the street for about $100 a gram, authorities said. A gram is equivalent to the amount of sugar in a restaurant packet.
Westphal, who was driving Partin’s pickup when they were stopped Sunday night, was cited for failure to signal.
