Armed Northern Iowa drug dealer sent to federal prison

CEDAR RAPIDS – A man that possessed firearms in connection with marijuana distribution was sentenced June 30, 2022, to more than five years in federal prison.

Kaleb James Huffman, age 23, from Fayette, Iowa, received the prison term after a December 28, 2021 guilty plea to one count of possession of a firearm by a drug user.

Evidence disclosed at sentencing showed that, on December 4, 2020, law enforcement searched Huffman’s residence and seized a Mossberg 715T, .22 LR caliber rifle with an obliterated serial number, a Raven Arms P-25, .25 Auto caliber pistol, and at least two pounds of marijuana, all in the same bedroom. Law enforcement also located evidence of marijuana use throughout the residence. A later search of Huffman’s social media accounts revealed pictures and videos of Huffman smoking marijuana, advertising the sale of marijuana, and possessing large sums of cash.

Huffman was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Huffman was sentenced to 70 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

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

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Dillan Edwards and investigated by the Fayette Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
