Burglary call results in drug charges against Muscatine woman


A burglary call in Lone Tree resulted in the arrest of a Muscatine woman on drug charges.

According to authorities, they were called on report of a burglary at a farm on Highway 22 at approximately 12:40am Tuesday. There, they found 34-year-old Corina Campbell of Pine Street hiding in the grass near the house.

Campbell originally gave police her sister’s name, Marisela Valle, but Muscatine County police on scene recognized her and alerted Johnson County that she regularly uses that name to avoid prosecution.

A search of a nearby vehicle found items belonging to the victims, including return address labels with the victim’s name and address.

Campbells real ID was located in a backpack, as was a wood puzzle box. Inside the box, officers found baggies containing meth and marijuana, and a glass pipe with burnt residue.

Campbell was taken to jail to be processed, and a strip search found 4 complete and two partial pills that were identified as alprazolam, a prescription drug.

Campbell has been charged with Burglary in the 3rd degree, possession of burglar’s tools, driving while barred habitual offender, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a prescription drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, and false ID information. If convicted on all counts, Campbell could be sentenced to over twelve years in prison.
