CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – A North Iowa drug arrest is sending a central Iowa man to federal prison.

Cerro Gordo County authorities say Justin Ray Davey of West Des Moines and Spencer Ray Fitzpatrick of Knoxville were picked up in October 2017 with more than two ounces of methamphetamine. State charges were then dropped to allow federal prosecution.


Spencer Fitzpatrick

Davey pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute meth, possession with intent to distribute meth, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime. He’s been sentenced to 16 years and eight months behind bars, followed by five years of supervised release.

Fitzpatrick entered a guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute meth. No sentencing date has been set for him.
