Six arrested in Marshalltown search warrants

May 18, 2019

Marshalltown, Iowa - Three drug search warrants were executed by the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force (MIDTF) on Thursday with the assistance of partner agencies, resulting in the arrest of six people, including one man that jumped from a window and fled. 

On the evening of May 16th, 2019 agents of the Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force served search warrants at 107 S 7th Avenue, 309 W Nevada Street and 106 W Nevada Street, Marshalltown.

As a result of this investigation, six suspects were arrested and jailed on various criminal drug charges: Justin Senethavysouk, age 18, Marshalltown, Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance with intent to Deliver (Marijuana), a class D-Felony; Tax Stamp Violation, a class D-Felony; Prohibited Acts, an Aggravated Misdemeanor. Carrying Weapons, an Aggravated Misdemeanor.

Brandon Senethavysouk, age 18, Marshalltown, Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance with intent to Deliver (Marijuana), a class D-Felony; Tax Stamp Violation, a class D-Felony; Prohibited Acts, an Aggravated Misdemeanor.

Michelle Senethavysouk, age 26, Marshalltown, Possession of Schedule I Controlled Substance with intent to Deliver (Marijuana), a class D-Felony; Tax Stamp Violation, a class D-Felony; Prohibited Acts, an Aggravated Misdemeanor; Child Endangerment, an Aggravated Misdemeanor.

Bounchanh Phetsomphou, age 46, Marshalltown, Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance with intent to Deliver (Marijuana), a class D-Felony; Tax Stamp Violation, a class D-Felony; Prohibited Acts, an Aggravated Misdemeanor.

Raylyn Finders, age 28, Marshalltown, Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance (Marijuana), a Serious Misdemeanor.

During the service of the search warrant at 107 S 7th Avenue a man jumped out of a window of the residence and ran from officers as they were making entry into the house. An assisting Tama County Sheriff's Office Deputy and his K9 partner located the individual, identified as Brandon Senethavysouk, hiding under a vehicle in a nearby yard where he was taken into custody without further incident.

The searches led to the discovery of evidence indicating cocaine and marijuana use as well as marijuana sales. Agents seized approximately three pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a firearm, and $1661 in U.S. currency.

Due to evidence of drug use and drug sales in one of the residences occupied by a child, the Drug Endangered Child (DEC) protocol was implemented and MIDTF Investigators removed the child from the house.

Additional arrests are pending as the investigation continues.

The Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force was assisted with the execution of the search warrants by the Marshalltown Police Department, the Tama County Sheriff's Office, and the Marshall County Sheriff's Office.

The Mid-Iowa Drug Task Force is funded in part by a grant through the United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, and the Governor's Office of Drug Control Policy.
