The Daily Freeman Journal

STANHOPE?- Two Stanhope women who conspired to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine have been sentenced to federal prison.

Nancy Collins, 49, and Amy Pringle, 46, received the prison terms after entering guilty pleas to conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine and one count of the manufacture or attempt to manufacture methamphetamine. On Jan. 16, 2001, Collins was convicted of possession of a controlled substance - third offense; and on Nov. 2, 1998, she was convicted of two counts of delivery of methamphetamine and one count of possession of methamphetamine - third offense, in the Iowa District Court for Story County.

At the guilty plea, Collins admitted that, from about 2010 through Nov. 1, 2011, she conspired to manufacture and distribute 50 grams or more of actual (pure) methamphetamine. On two occasions, once in August, and once in November 2011, law enforcement officers conducted searches of Collins' residence and seized a number of items consistent with those used in manufacturing methamphetamine. Collins admitted to her involvement with one or more others in the manufacture of methamphetamine on each of those dates, and that her residence was located within 1,000 feet of the Stanhope City Park.

Collins was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Collins was sentenced to 120 months' imprisonment. A special assessment of $200 was imposed. She must also serve a 20-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Collins is being held in the United States Marshal's custody until she can be transported to a federal prison.

Pringle received herprison term after an April 25 guilty plea to conspiracy to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine.

At the guilty plea, Pringle admitted that, from about 2010 through November 1, 2011, she conspired to manufacture and distribute 50 grams or more of actual (pure) methamphetamine. Pringle delivered pseudoephedrine pills to a co-defendant's residence for the manufacture of methamphetamine and received methamphetamine in exchange. The residence utilized in the manufacture of meth was located within 1,000 feet of the Stanhope City Park. According to pseudoephedrine logs obtained in the investigation during the course of the conspiracy and relevant conduct thereto, Pringle acquired (by purchase or other means) at least 117.4 grams of pseudoephedrine for the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Pringle was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Pringle was sentenced to 73 months' imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. She must also serve a 10-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Pringle is being held in the United States Marshal's custody until she can be transported to a federal prison.

Both Collins and Pringle's cases were prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and was investigated by the Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, Ellsworth-Jewell-Stanhope (EJS) Police Department, the Central Iowa Drug Task Force (Story and Boone County), and Division of Criminal Investigation.
