U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Iowa

A man who committed drug trafficking offenses while on federal supervised release for a prior gun conviction was sentenced on January 4, 2024, to 168 months in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine.

Ryan Marshall Thomas Streets, age 44, from Poway, California, received the prison term after a July 10, 2023 guilty plea to two counts of distribution of a controlled substance.           

Streets, who resided in Onslow, Iowa, distributed large quantities of methamphetamine on two occasions in January of 2023 in Maquoketa, Iowa, while he was on federal supervised release for a prior gun offense. In March 2023, Streets’ supervised release was revoked, and he was sentenced to two-years in custody for violating the conditions of his supervised release.

Streets was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams.  Streets was sentenced to 168 months’ imprisonment.  He must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Streets 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 Nicole L. Nagin, and it was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Clinton County Sherriff’s Office, and the Iowa State Police.
