The U-S Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says 58-year old David Andrew Stump, of Glenwood, was sentenced today (Tuesday) in United States District Court in Council Bluffs, to 36-months in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Stump will serve 2-years of supervised release once his term in prison is completed. He’s also required to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim Fund.

His conviction was the result of a June 1st, 2011, a State of Iowa search warrant executed at Stump’s residence in Glenwood, by local law enforcement officers. Seventeen grams of actual methamphetamine was found, along with small amounts of other drugs and indications drugs were being distributed.

On August 3rd, 2011, while Stump was on release pending trial on the first charge, local
officers executed a second search warrant at Stump’s residence. As a result of the search, local officers seized 6 grams of actual methamphetamine and other indicators of drug distribution.

A federal indictment was returned against him on August 24th, 2011. On December 6th of that year, Stump entered a guilty plea in federal court to one of the two counts of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The case against him was investigated by the SouthWest Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force, the Mills County Sheriff’s Department, and the Glenwood Police Department. It was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
