Vail, Iowa, Man To Federal Prison For Meth Charges

A man who possessed with intent to distribute methamphetamine was sentenced September 19, 2013, to 10 years in federal prison.

            Jeffrey Duane Krowiorz, II, 25, from Vail, Iowa, received the prison term after a March 16, 2013, guilty plea to possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine. 

            At the guilty plea, Krowiorz admitted that on September 28, 2012, he possessed over 18 grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine and intended to distribute the methamphetamine to other persons.  Krowiorz attempted to flee (on foot) when officers made contact with him regarding an outstanding arrest warrant.  Krowiorz was apprehended a short distance away and officers seized from Krowiorz three separate baggies of methamphetamine concealed within a body spray container converted into a storage container.    

            Krowiorz was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Donald E. O’Brien.  Krowiorz was sentenced to 120 months’ imprisonment.  A special assessment of $100 was imposed.  He must also serve an eight-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Krowiorz is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

            The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement, Spirit Lake Police Department, and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigations.
