SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A woman has been sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine in Sioux City.

In October 2019, Kazena distributed a quarter pound of methamphetamine to a confidential informant as part of an operation by law enforcement.  

Two weeks later, Kazena was found in possession of half an ounce of methamphetamine and admitted to her involvement in the distribution of at least two pounds of methamphetamine for a large source, according to officials.  

Kazena was sentenced to 126 months (about 10 and a half years) in prison and seven years of supervised release following imprisonment
