A 58-year-old Glenwood man has been sentenced in United States District Court to serve three years in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
David Andrew Stump was sentenced March 27 in Council Bluffs by U.S. District Court Judge John A. Jarvey. After serving his prison time, Stump will be on two years of supervised release and has been ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim Fund.
On June 1, 2011, a state search warrant was exercised at Stump’s residence by local law enforcement officers. At that time, 17 grams of methamphetamine was found at his property, along with smaller amounts of other drugs and indicia of distribution of drugs. On Aug. 3, while Stump was on release pending trial, another search warrant was carried out at Stump’s residence. Officers seized six grams of methamphetamine and other evidence of drug distribution.
A federal indictment was returned on Aug. 24, 2011, and on Dec. 6, 2011, Stump entered a guilty plea in federal court to one of the two counts of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Officers from the Glenwood Police Department, Mills County Sheriff’s Office and Southwest Iowa Narcotics Task Force took part in the investigation and assisted prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
