SIOUX CITY – A Nebraska man caught with meth, scales, and drug paraphernalia in Iowa was sent to prison for 15 years.

Calvin Wright, 33, from Creighton, Nebraska, pled guilty on January 24, 2024, to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Wright was previously convicted of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in 2016 in Nebraska.

Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings showed that on July 5, 2023, in Sioux City, Iowa, law enforcement stopped a vehicle in which Wright was a passenger. Due to suspicious activity, a K-9 was deployed and indicated the presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle. In a backpack which had been between Wright’s legs in the vehicle, law enforcement found approximately 95 grams of pure methamphetamine, scales, and drug paraphernalia.

Sentencing was held before United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand. Wright was sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment and must serve a term of ten years supervised release following imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. Wright 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 Patrick T. Greenwood and was investigated by 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.
