Page County, Iowa, Resident Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA- On July 24, 2015, James Paul Davis, a 31 year-old resident of Shenandoah, Iowa, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge James E. Gritzner to 192 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, announced United States Attorney Nicholas Klinefeldt. Davis was also ordered to serve five years of supervised release following the period of imprisonment.

Davis entered a guilty plea on March 11, 2015, to the charge of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. The plea of guilty resulted from a year-long investigation that showed large quantities of methamphetamine were transported to Southwestern Iowa from the border region in Texas for distribution across Southwestern Iowa and into Eastern Nebraska from September of 2013 to June of 2014.

The investigation was conducted by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Page County Sheriff’s Office, Shenandoah, Iowa, Police Department, Mills County Sheriff’s Office, Southwest Iowa Narcotics Task Force, Omaha, Nebraska, Police Department, Metro Area Fugitive Task Force, and the United States Marshal’s Service for the Southern District of Iowa.

The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
