Sioux City meth dealer to spend at least five years behind bars

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa man will spend at least five years in federal prison after pleading guilty to distributing methamphetamine in the northwest corner of the state.

Federal prosecutors say Esmelin Belloso-Valle pleaded guilty last week to selling meth and conspiring with others to sell it. 

Prosecutors say the 48-year-old Sibley man was involved with selling meth in the Sioux City area in 2011 and early 2012. 

Belloso-Valle and some of the people he was involved with sold more than 200 grams of methamphetamine to undercover police officers. And at least one of those sales happened near a school.

Belloso-Valle's minimum sentence will be five years, but he could be sentenced to a maximum of 80 years in prison.
