Monona County Auditor arrested on drug charge

ONAWA, Iowa (AP) — The Monona County auditor has been released on a promise to appear in court after her arrest on charges of possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says in a statement that 27-year old Brooke Kuhlmann scheduled a methamphetamine buy and pickup from an undercover Iowa State Patrol officer on Monday who had seized a dealer’s cell phone the day before.

After the drug purchase, Onawa police initiated a traffic stop and took Kuhlmann into custody for questioning.

She was arrested, charged and released.

Kuhlmann, a Democrat, is serving her second term as auditor.

A home telephone number could not immediately be located for her. The case had not yet been posted in online court records.
