Comments Off on Iowan admits selling meth he obtained in Nebraska

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a 27-year-old man has admitted distributing methamphetamine in the western Iowa city of Denison.

Prosecutors say Antonio Lara-Pantoja, of Denison, pleaded guilty in federal court in Sioux City to a drug conspiracy charge. He was arrested on March 26, 2011, after officers found nearly 4 grams of meth in his vehicle.

Investigators say Lara-Pantoja sold meth in Denison from January through March last year after obtaining it in Omaha, Neb.

He faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 40 years in prison. His sentencing hasn’t been scheduled yet.
