Authorities say their investigation traced the shipment of methamphetamine from Texas into Page County in southwest Iowa. The drug was then distributed throughout southwest Iowa and eastern Nebraska. Forty-one-year-old James Jayson Davis of Shenandoah pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in February and he was sentenced this week.
His cousin, 31-year-old James Paul Davis, was also arrested and he pled guilty in March. In July the younger cousin was sentenced to 16 years in prison.
