County auditor faces drug charge

Brooke Kuhlmann

The auditor for Monona County, Iowa faces a criminal charge after state police accused her of trying to buy drugs from a trooper.

The day before the arrest, an Iowa State Trooper seized a phone from an alleged methamphetamine dealer. Police said Monoma County auditor Brooke Kuhlmann, 27, then arranged a drug purchase via a call that involved that seized phone.

“Shortly after Kuhlmann retrieved the drugs, Onawa Police executed a traffic stop and she was taken into custody for questioning,” said a statement from Iowa State Police.

Court records show Kuhlmann faces one count of possession of a controlled substance.

Kuhlmann was arrested and later released Monday, July 29, 2013.
