A man who conspired to distribute methamphetamine in central and northwest Iowa will spend more than eleven years in federal prison. Thirty-year-old Jason Moore of LeMars pled guilty in April to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

Moore admitted to his involvement in a conspiracy that distributed more than 500 grams of pure methamphetamine from about June of 2012 through March 2013. Moore lived in northwest Iowa and sold meth to various customers there and he also traveled to Des Moines, one or two times each week to obtain methamphetamine for resale in central and northwest Iowa.

Moore was sentenced to 162 months in prison with credit for 19 months previously served for a current sentence of 143 months.
