Northwest Iowa man admits to being part of a meth distribution ring
A Northwest Iowa man has pleaded guilty to Federal drug charges.
36-year-old Raymond Kerns of Cherokee admitted to conspiracy to distribute meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute.
He had previously been convicted of drug possession in Iowa.
At his plea hearing, Kerns admitted that between January of 2017 and February of 2018, he had been part of a meth distribution ring that had sold more than 500 grams of meth in and around Cherokee.
He was arrested in Storm Lake trying to buy meth in February.
He faces a mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison when he's sentenced later this year.
