SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Federal authorities say he dealt drugs for over a decade. Now a Wright County man is going to prison.

Gregory Stockdale, 52 of Eagle Grove, pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says Stockdale admitted to distributing 1.5 kilograms of meth in the Eagle Grove area between February 2017 and November 2017. Court documents state Stockdale had been involved in meth dealing for over 10 years and that he and a co-conspirator both were armed with guns during an attempted drug deal.

A search of Stockdale’s home seized over eight grams of pure meth, $600 in cash, and other materials involved in drug distribution.

He’s been sentenced to seven years in federal prison, followed by four years of supervised release.

The Wright County Sheriff’s Office and Eagle Grove Police Department assisted with his investigation.
