An eastern Iowa man will spend more than 10 years in prison on drug charges. A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 28-year-old Luis Chavez Preciado to 151 months in prison for charges related to distributing methamphetamine.
Court records show between May and September of 2013 he conspired with others to distribute ice methamphetamine in the Iowa City and Muscatine areas. Undercover officers made several purchases of the ice meth from a person who was being supervised by Preciado. Police seized a large amount of meth, digital scales, a shotgun and other items after searching Preciado’s Iowa City residence.
