A western Iowa man is facing prison time for a methamphetamine operation linking Mexico and Omaha. Frank Hardman of Council Bluffs was sentenced to 10 years in prison Friday. He pleaded guilty to conspiring with another individual to distribute meth in western Iowa and eastern Nebraska.
Authorities say Hardman and DiAnna Dee Cruz received the drugs from Mexico through Omaha between December of 2006 and February of 2007. Cruz was sentenced earlier this year to five years in prison.
