Three men are facing prison time in two cases involving the distribution of methamphetamine. Robert Skarin and William Meisner, who are both 53 and from Sioux City, pled guilty to a charge of conspiracy to deliver meth.
Both men admitted to traveling to Omaha, Nebraska to buy meth to bring back to Iowa to sell. The two men were caught in a traffic stop in April where Skarin was driving and Meisner was a passenger.
Officers found a brown bag inside Skarin’s right sock that contained 80 grams of meth that the two admitted they planned to sell. In the other case, 33-year-old James Edward Poole of Bone admitted to a conspiracy to distribute over 1,000 grams of mixed meth that contained at least 150 grams of pure meth.
The admission came after officers discovered Poole with 134 grams of meth during a traffic stop in January. He said he got the meth in Webster City.
Poole also pled guilty to a firearm possession charge after a gun was found in his vehicle during the same traffic stop. All three men are awaiting a sentencing date. The three men each face a minimum sentence of 10 years in a federal prison, and a maximum of life.
