An Omaha woman has been sentenced to 80 months in prison for her role in a significant conspiracy to manufacture meth. Federal investigators say 35-year old Jennifer Mae Biggerstaff was involved in what has become known as the Fisher Farm Case.
The Fisher Farm is located in rural Mills County, Iowa. Federal authorities say an estimated 5.5 pounds of pure meth was manufactured at the farm between February 2003 and May 2011. The investigation revealed some of the suspects were responsible for stealing substantial amounts of anhydrous ammonia in southwest Iowa. A few were responsible for the purchase of pseudoephedrine from several stores in Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri.
Biggerstaff pleaded guilty to her role of purchasing pseudoephedrine a key ingredient used in the manufacture of meth. She was also sentenced to spend five years of supervised released following her imprisonment. A $100 special assessment fine was imposed on her for the Crime Victim Fund.
Five other people have been charged in connection to the case. Three of them have already been sentenced.
Kirk Jason Hardman will serve 10 years in prison, Trent James Fisher will serve 90 months in prison, Timothy Earl Bendt will serve 4 years in prison and Paul Leon Foster will serve 13 years in prison.
