STORM LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) -

Assistant Chief Todd Erskine says on Wednesday Storm Lake Police additionally charged three people who were being held in the Pocahontas County Jail.

He says police charged 24-year-old Daryl Dehart, 23-year-old Christine Dooling, and 31-year-old Janette Schmitz, all of Laurens, with Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine and Possession of Precursors.

Both charges are felonies.

All three remain in custody in the Pocahontas County Jail.

In addition, the Tulsa County, Oklahoma Sheriffs Department located and arrested 34-year-old Gabriel Moreno, of Laurens on warrants issued by the Storm Lake Police Department charging him with Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine and Possession of Precursors.

Police worked with Oklahoma law enforcement to locate and arrest Moreno when it was learned he fled from the area prior to the execution of the March 29th search warrants in Laurens.

Erskine alleges that all four suspects conspired to travel to Storm Lake on a consistent basis for many weeks to obtain items including but not limited to pseudoephedrine from local retailers for the purpose of manufacturing meth.

All four are being held on a $100,000 cash bond awaiting their return to the Buena Vista County Jail.
