Mason City woman pleads not guilty to gun, drug charges

MASON CITY — A Mason City woman arrested in April on gun and drug charges has pleaded not guilty.

A criminal complaint says a warrant was executed at a residence in the Gracious Estates mobile home community at 777 South Eisenhower in the morning hours of April 20th. Investigators say they found a multi-pound quantity of suspected methamphetamine, which is more than five grams and a redistribution quantity. They also allegedly found heroin as well as a pistol and an AR-15 rifle.

44-year-old Lisa Smith was charged with conspiracy to deliver meth, intent to deliver heroin, and two counts of illegally possessing weapons.

Smith pleaded not guilty this week to the charges, with her trial scheduled to start on June 27th.
