WINNER -- A Winner man was arrested Oct. 26 after methamphetamine, marijuana and distribution materials were allegedly found in a house adjacent to Winner Elementary School.

Warren Iron Heart, 20, was charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor and could face up to 31 years in prison if convicted of all charges.

Winner police obtained search warrants for a house on West Fifth Street and allegedly found a digital scale with a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine on it, a prescription bottle without a label containing 1.95 grams of methamphetamine in baggies, 7.195 grams of marijuana and various drug paraphernalia in what was determined to be Iron Heart's room. About $750 in cash was reportedly found on Iron Heart, and police determined the distance between the house and the elementary school property line was 69.3 feet.

Iron Heart is charged with possession of two ounces or less of marijuana, unauthorized possession of methamphetamine, violating a drug-free zone and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The latter charge is typically a Class 4 felony, but the charge against Iron Heart was enhanced to a Class 3 felony because he is alleged to have also been in possession of more than $300 in cash, drug transaction records and bulk packaging materials.
