(ABC 6 News) - The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's Office has arrested four people after getting a call for a suspicious person Sunday night.

Deputies were called to the area of 305th Street and Hickory Ave north of Clear Lake, Iowa around 10:30 p.m.


They tried to pull a car over when deputies said the driver, 57-year-old Shawn Hedin, got out and ran. 

Deputies caught up to him and arrested him on several charges including two warrants for possession of a controlled substance.

Edward Sharpe II was also arrested for driving under suspension. 

Deputies say they then served a search warrant at a home based off information from the traffic stop.

Inside, deputies found 51-year-old Alena Bangs and 48-year-old Sherrie Stockdale.

Bangs was arrested on active warrants while Stockdale was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Deputies also found meth, marijuana, numerous drug-related items and other unknown substances.

In the home, officials said they found a hidden laboratory used to make meth.

The case is still under investigation and additional charges are pending.
