CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa woman who distributed approximately 20 pounds of methamphetamine was sentenced on May 29, 2018, to more than 5 years in federal prison.

Angela Kaye Olson, 49, from Boone, Iowa, received the prison term after a March 15, 2017, guilty plea to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Evidence at sentencing showed that Olson had three different sources of methamphetamine and sold approximately twenty pounds in total within a six-month period. Olson, who is a felon, admitted to unlawfully possessing firearms and on one occasion, trading a firearm for methamphetamine.

Olson was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Olson was sentenced to 68 months’ imprisonment. She must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Olson is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until she can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ajay Alexander and investigated by DEA Tri-State Drug Task Force based in Sioux City, Iowa, that consists of law enforcement personnel from the Drug Enforcement Administration; Sioux City, Iowa, Police Department; Homeland Security Investigations; Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office; South Sioux City, Nebraska, Police Department; Nebraska State Patrol; Iowa National Guard; Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement; United States Marshals Service; South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation; and Woodbury County Attorney’s Office.
