South Sioux City Man Found Guilty of Methamphetamine and Firearm Charges

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Jacob W. Deng, 33, was found guilty by a United States District Court jury of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine, Distribution of Methamphetamine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine and Marijuana, and being a Convicted Felon in Possession of a Firearm, after a two and a half day jury trial before the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, United States District Judge.

The evidence presented at trial revealed that on April 17, 2014, South Sioux City DEA Task Force Officers executed a search warrant on Deng’s South Sioux City apartment and discovered approximately two ounces of crystal methamphetamine, multiple ounces of marijuana, drug packaging materials, over $7,000 in cash, and two firearms. The evidence at trial revealed that Deng was a convicted felon and had previously delivered methamphetamine to a cooperating witness.

This case was the result of an investigation by the South Sioux City Police Department and DEA Tri-State Drug Task Force.
