Sheldon, Iowa — A man who admitted to conspiring to distribute pounds of methamphetamine in Sheldon will spend 10 years in federal prison.
Authorities say 43-year-old Wesley Wood from San Marcos, California, received a 10-year prison term this week after pleading guilty in May to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
In a plea agreement, Wood admitted he conspired to distribute multiple pounds of methamphetamine to Sheldon in the U.S. Postal Service.
Wood was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand to 120 months in prison. He must also serve a four-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ron Timmons and investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Tri-State Drug Task Force based in Sioux City.
