Homeowner charged after occupants busted for drugs

After police said they repeatedly made drug busts at a home in Blue Grass, the occupants and the homeowner are all facing criminal charges.

Deputies with the Scott County Sheriff’s Department arrested Ryan Lee Toliver, 23 and Emily Ann Dwyer, 21, Thursday, February 28, 2013 at their home in the 6000 block of 116th Street in rural Blue Grass.  They are both facing charges of conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple counts of unlawful prescription use after police said they found marijuana and prescription pills in the home.

That wasn’t the first time police had been to that address.

Toliver and Dwyer were also charged in January after police found a psilocybin mushroom lab at that same home.

The Quad City Times reports police found two ounces of synthetic ecstasy at that house in July 2009, for which Toliver was convicted and served two years of probation.

Toliver’s grandfather, William “Jeff” Marolf, 64, owns the house.  After the repeated busts there, police have now charged Marolf with hosting a drug house.

Marolf was released on $5,000 bond after he spent about an hour and a half in the Scott County Jail.  He made his first appearance in court March 1.

Dwyer was also free on $5,000 bond.  She was appointed a public defender and is next due in court in the end of March.

Toliver remained in the Scott County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond.  He was scheduled to make his first appearance in this case March 4.
