A Perry man was arrested on a warrant Tuesday for probation violation in connection with a February 2019 drug bust in Perry in which he was found with nearly one ounce of methamphetamine.
Sayde Steel Hein, 20, of 1824 Estella St., Perry, was arrested on a Dallas County warrant for probation violation on an original charge of failure to affix drug stamp.
Hein was arrested Feb. 2, 2019, in Perkins Park in Perry after officers of the Perry Police Department found him possession of various drug paraphernalia and “a large crystal rock” that field tested positive for methamphetamine, according to court records.
The rock’s “approximate weight was determined to be 26.2 grams,” according to court records.
Hein received a deferred judgement in May 2019 and was sentenced to three years’ probation in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of a probation violation in December 2019, and the deferred judgment was revoked. Hein received a 10-year suspended prison sentence and was placed on probation for three years.
An arrest warrant was ordered in May 2020 after Hein absconded from a residential treatment facility in Des Moines. The warrant was served Tuesday.
Hein is held without bond in the Dallas County Jail in advance of a hearing Dec. 30 in Dallas County District Court.
Hein was convicted Monday of controlled substance violation in Crawford County District Court. He was convicted of controlled substance violation in May 2019 in Dallas County District Court. He was convicted of first-offense possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine in 2018 in Crawford County District Court.
