Sioux City Man Sentenced to Prison for Methamphetamine Offense

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa - On April 25, 2018, Alan Calderon Reyes, 23, of Sioux City, Iowa, appeared before United States District Court Senior Judge James E. Gritzner and was sentenced to 151 months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum.

On April 10, 2017, following a high-speed car chase with law enforcement in Washington County, Nebraska, Reyes crossed the Iowa state line into Pottawattamie County, where Pottawattamie County deputies continued to pursue Reyes.

Reyes was eventually apprehended and a large quantity of methamphetamine was seized from his vehicle.

This case was investigated by Washington County, Nebraska Sheriff’s Office, Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office, Southwest Iowa Narcotics Task Force, and Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
