A Fontanelle man will spend 10 years in prison on a drug charge. Forty-nine-year-old Jason Steckelberg pled guilty in November to possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine. Court records show Steckelberg obtained meth from South Omaha, Nebraska to bring back to sell in Adair and Cass County in south-west Iowa.
Steckelberg was stopped by police in April and they found over four ounces of meth in the car along with cash and other drug-related items. He was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison.
A man from Atlantic was sentenced to five years in prison in another case. Thirty-five-year-old Azucena Cordero pled guilty in October to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He admitted to obtaining meth from South Omaha, Nebraska and then selling it around Atlantic and to a person in Polk City.
Cordero was sentenced to 60 months in prison. A person who worked with him, Paul Jessen, had already been sentenced to over 10 years in prison for distributing meth.
