A 41-year-old Council Bluffs man gets to be a resident of the federal prison system for 20 years for his involvement with drugs and guns. Gary Eldred Kremer was sentenced Tuesday.
Kremer was convicted for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and for possessing a sawed-off shotgun. Each conviction got him ten years in prison which will be served consecutively.
U.S. District Court Judge John A. Jarvey also sentenced Kremer to five years supervised release once Kremer serves his sentence.
On January 18, 2011 a search warrant was served on Kremer’s home in Council Bluffs. At the time, co-defendant Shannon Hardisty was living with Kremer. Officers from the SouthWest Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force found evidence of drug trafficking in Kremer’s bedroom along with the shotgun.
Officers determined that Kremer conspired to distribute meth from the summer of 2010 until the time the search warrant was served.
Hadisty was previously sentenced to 170 months in prison for her participation in the methamphetamine conspiracy.
