Eldridge man in custody for drug-related costs

A 34-year-old man from Eldridge was in Scott County Jail late Thursday on charges of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and child hazard.

Sgt. Josh Wall of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Scott County Sheriff’s Office emailed a note along with affidavits at 10:16 pm Thursday saying, “Attached is arrest information from a death investigation in the city Eldridge originate. Further information will be released in the course of the investigation. “

Shane Bostrom faces charges of lack of a drug tax stamp and extradition possession, along with charges of child endangerment, obstruction of law enforcement, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Just after 3:45 p.m. Thursday at 300 block on West Davenport Street, Eldridge, eight live pot-grown marijuana plants were found in Bostrom, along with two growing tents with lights, weight scales, humidity scales and “bags for delivery” of “marijuana” in his apartment, it says in an affidavit.

Bostrom’s 5-year-old daughter, who lives in the home, “had access to the acreage and plants inside the residence,” the affidavits read.

Several glass pipes, which were commonly used to smoke marijuana and which smelled of burned marijuana, were in the apartment and were accessible to the child.

During the investigation, video surveillance showed that Bostrom removed the eight plants and placed them outside on the back of the house “to hide evidence of criminal prosecution,” the affidavit said.

Bostrom, held in the Scott County Jail on a cash loan of $ 14,300, is due to appear before a judge in Scott County Court Friday morning.
