DAVENPORT, Iowa — On Wednesday, April 21, 2021, United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose sentenced Larry Dean Weir, age 40, of Davenport, to 120 months in prison for Possession with Intent to Distribute 50 Grams or More of Methamphetamine announced Acting United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal. Weir was ordered to serve five years of supervised release to follow his prison term and pay $100 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.

A female acquaintance of Weir’s admitted receiving methamphetamine from him earlier that day. Weir admitted he possessed the methamphetamine with the intent to distribute some or all of it to other persons.

This matter was investigated by the Bettendorf Police Department and the case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
