SIOUX CITY – A traffic stop yielded over a pound of meth, a stolen assault rifle, and two other firearms, leading to a woman from Humboldt pleading guilty in a meth conspiracy.
Lisa Marie Stock, 31, from Humboldt, Iowa, was convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
At the plea hearing, Stock admitted her involvement in a conspiracy that distributed at least 1500 grams of mixed methamphetamine from January 2018 through February 2018. During a traffic stop of a vehicle Stock was driving on February 6, 2018, law enforcement seized over 800 grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine and three firearms, including a stolen AR-15 rifle with an extra capacity magazine. Stock admitted she and another possessed the methamphetamine with intent to distribute it and aided and abetted another’s possession of firearms during the time of the conspiracy.
Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Stock was released on bond previously set. Stock faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $10,000,000 fine, and five years up to life of supervised release following any imprisonment.
The case is being 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, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa Division of Criminalistics Investigation.
