July 26, 2013

DAVENPORT, IA – On July 25, 2013, Keevin J. Hanes, age 26, was sentenced by United States District Judge James E. Gritzner to 161 months imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute, and possession with intent to distribute, 280 grams or more of cocaine base, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Hanes was also ordered to serve five years of supervised release following the imprisonment, and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

Beginning in approximately September 2011 and continuing until about December 26, 2012, Hanes conspired with others to distribute cocaine base in the Davenport, Iowa, area. Hanes purchased cocaine from various persons which was then converted to cocaine base and redistributed in the Davenport area. As part of the investigation, law enforcement officers conducted searches of Hanes’ Davenport residence on two occasions and seized cocaine base, cocaine, a digital scale, packaging material, drug paraphernalia, and a significant amount of U.S. currency.

This case was investigated by the Davenport, Iowa, Police Department; the United States Drug Enforcement Administration; the Muscatine County Drug Task Force; and the Iowa Department of Public Safety-Division of Narcotics Enforcement. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
