Authorities have made another arrest regarding a local meth lab, but they are still looking for a third suspect and are asking for the public's help in locating her.


The Fayette County Sheriff conducted the search on June 1st, at a home in Hawkeye, as part of an investigation into the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Initially, authorities arrested 34-year-old Brian Sunnes on meth charges.

From the evidence gathered at the scene, the sheriff issued two more warrants, for 34-year-old Jeremy Quario and 30-year-old Norma Quario, both of Oelwein. The charge was Aiding and Abetting to Manufacture Methamphetamine.

Last Thursday (June 15), Jeremy Quario was taken into custody, and is being held on $25,000 bond.

Norma Quario is still at-large. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Fayette County Sheriff's Office (319-422-6067, ext. 0).
