Omaha woman gets 8-year federal sentence in Iowa for meth possession
She pled to a charge in federal court; co-defendant set for sentencing in October
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (WOWT) - A 33-year-old Omaha woman was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to eight years in prison after pleading to a drug charge.
Anisha Ilene Luna pled to a charge of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
Luna was arrested after the Mills County Sheriff’s Department was tipped off that she and co-defendant Ronald Wayne Reed II had plans to deliver an ounce of meth to someone in a McDonald’s parking lot in Glenwood. During a search of their vehicle, deputies found more than 5 grams of meth, which authorities said the pair had planned to distribute.
“Investigation showed that Luna and Reed had distributed over a pound of methamphetamine,” the release from Richard Westphal’s office states.
Reed is set for sentencing on Oct. 5 in Council Bluffs.
The Iowa State Patrol and the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement also assisted in the investigation of this case, the release states.
