CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A Charles City man is going to federal prison for dealing meth.

Alonzo Henderson, 45, pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. He confessed to having over 500 grams of meth and $65,500 in cash in December 2017 and that over 5.5 kilograms of meth and $107,572 in drug proceeds were found at his home in May 2018.
