(Armstrong)-- Two Armstrong men face drug charges following a traffic stop this past Sunday in Armstrong. Authorities say the suspect vehicle was pulled over for an alleged traffic violation near the intersection of 2nd Avenue and 9th Street. Officers say the Estherville Police Department's Canine Unit Max was deployed, resulting in them finding a little more than a pound of methamphetamine in the vehicle. The meth has an estimated street value of about $52,000

Two men who were in the vehicle, Scott Quastad and William Clay, were arrested and charged with one count each of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver within a thousand feet of a protected area...a class "B" felony; and one count each of failure to affix a drug tax stamp...a class "D" felony.

Authorities then obtained and executed search warrants on both men's residences, along with Quastad's truck. Officers seized several items. A news release doesn't say what those items are.

Authorities say additional charges are expected to be filed.

Armstrong police were assisted by the Iowa Great Lakes Drug Task Force and the Estherville Police Department and its Canine Unit.
