A man caught in an investigation of drug trafficking in southeast Iowa is being sent to federal prison. On Thursday, 22-year-old Antonio Murray of Iowa City was sentenced to five years in prison and five years of parole.
This spring he pled guilty to conspiring to distribute at least 280 grams of crack cocaine from July through November of last year. He also pled guilty to a gun charge. Murray’s arrest was made after law enforcement in the Iowa City area began an investigation into what prosecutors called “a significant drug trafficking organization in Iowa City.”
Prosecutors say it distributed “large amounts” of crack in southeast Iowa.
