United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum announced on Feb. 27, Timothy Dean Curphey, 35, was sentenced by United States District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine. Curphey was sentenced to 204 months in prison to be followed by a seven-year term of supervised release.

In April 2016, a concerned citizen presented a suspicious package to the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office. Law enforcement examined the package, and discovered it had been sent from Mexico and contained methamphetamine disguised as candy. This investigation led to Curphey and others that had distributed over fifty pounds of methamphetamine in Southwest Iowa.

This case was investigated by Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Page County Sheriff’s Office, Adams County Sheriff’s Office and Taylor County Sheriff’s Office. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
