WATERLOO — One person has been arrested in a series of raids at homes in Waterloo on Thursday.

The searches were carried out by the FBI as well as officers with other local and federal agencies, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Iowa.

Additional details weren’t available, but authorities said the public isn’t in danger.

Court records show Alonzo Jamal Henderson, 44, of 1901 Clearview St., was arrested at his home Thursday for possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and a drug tax stamp act violation. Bond on the drug charge was set at $55,000, and he is being held without bond for a parole violation in connection with a 2013 drug case.

Thursday’s arrest relates to a Dec. 1 traffic stop on Idaho Street that coincided with a search warrant that was being executed at his home that same day. During the stop, officers found a backpack that contained meth and a large amount of cash. The amount of meth was more than 7 grams.

Henderson, who was the driver, denied any knowledge of the backpack, and he wasn’t arrested at the time.

Henderson was the subject of a January 2011 robbery at a Cedar Falls mobile home where he was living at the time. During the crime, masked robbers shot him in the chest, leg and arm, and he survived.
