A man who conspired to distribute methamphetamine was sentenced on May 4, 2022, in federal court in Sioux City.

Demarcus Foy, 31, from Fort Dodge, Iowa, pled guilty on November 18, 2021, to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and one count of distribution of methamphetamine. 

At the plea and sentencing hearings, evidence showed that between April 2015 and continuing to on or about June 2020, Foy and others distributed more than 45 kilograms of methamphetamine primarily in Fort Dodge and Mason City, Iowa areas.  Also, on four separate occasions during 2019, Foy distributed a total of four ounces methamphetamine to individuals cooperating and under the supervision of law enforcement in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Foy often received from six to ten pounds of methamphetamine at a time from his source, which he further distributed.  

Sentencing was held before United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand.  Foy was sentenced to 252 months’ imprisonment and must serve a 5-year term of supervised release following the imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Foy remains in custody of the United States Marshal until he can be transported to a federal prison.  

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and was investigated by the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement, Fort Dodge Police Department, Webster County Sheriff’s Office, the Mason City Police Department, Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office, and Iowa DCI Laboratory.
