Davenport Woman Sentenced On Federal Drug Trafficking Offense

DAVENPORT, IA – On September 11, 2014, Leann Sue Perez, age 39, of Davenport, Iowa, was sentenced by United States District Judge John A. Jarvey for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Perez was sentenced to 40 months in prison, and was ordered to serve three years of supervised release following the imprisonment, and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

On June 17, 2013, law enforcement executed a search warrant for a Davenport, Iowa, residence associated with Perez and her co-defendant, Jose Antonio Garcia. At that residence agents located, among other things, over one-half kilogram cocaine, digital scales, and packaging material.

Prior to the June 17 search, Perez and Garcia obtained additional quantities of cocaine from a source of supply and distributed that cocaine to customers in the Davenport, Iowa, area.

On August 15, 2014, Judge Jarvey sentenced co-defendant Jose Antonio Garcia, age 44, of Davenport, Iowa, to 108 months in prison, and also ordered Garcia to serve three years of supervised release following the imprisonment and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims Fund.
