(COUNCIL BLUFFS) A Pottawattamie County man was sentenced to 121 months imprisonment for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Fifty year old Douglas John Howard was sentenced Thursday. He was also ordered to serve a four year term of supervised release following incarceration. Howard pled guilty on February 8th to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
The conviction resulted from a joint law enforcement investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine in the Council Bluffs area which began with a traffic stop in June of 2012 where Howard was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, digital scales, plastic baggies and drug distribution notes. The investigation identified Howard as a person responsible for regularly distributing methamphetamine in Council Bluffs, along with rural areas in Pottawattamie and Mills counties.
