West Des Moines Woman Sentenced For Fentanyl Distribution

DES MOINES, IOWA - On Tuesday, July 29, 2014, Macey Lynn Stills, age 23 of West Des Moines, Iowa, was sentenced to 21 months imprisonment for distributing fentanyl, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Chief District Judge James E. Gritzner also ordered Stills to serve a term of three years supervised release following the term of imprisonment, and to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim’s Fund.

In early 2013, Stills took fentanyl patches from her place of employment, and subsequently sold them. On January 10, 2013, Stills sold four patches for $160 to an individual who later died that same date from a fentanyl overdose. On March 24, 2014, Stills pled guilty to distribution of fentanyl in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a) and 841(b)(1)(C).

This investigation was conducted by the Ames, Iowa, Police Department, the Central Iowa Drug Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
