A Nebraska man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for selling methamphetamine in the Sioux City area.
The US. Attorney for northern Iowa says 37-year-old Esteban Curiel was sentenced this week for his role in a drug distribution ring.
The South Sioux City, Neb., man pleaded guilty in December.
Prosecutors say Curiel was obtaining meth from several sourcesand reselling it.
He is believed to have sold more than three pounds of the drug.
Curiel had a small amount of methamphetamine on him when he was
arrested last July.
He threw it out his car window when officers tried to stop him.
